In November 2013 Mark Williams MP and Cathy Jamieson MP visited nutrition and education programmes in Tanzania, accompanied by staff from RESULTS UK. The aim of the delegation was to assess how Tanzania is addressing major development challenges related to early childhood development including undernutrition and its impact on children’ s ability to learn.
This report, the third in a series on nutrition from RESULTS, focuses on the nutrition situation in Cambodia - a country with rapid economic growth but stagnant progress on reducing national levels of undernutrition. The report looks at the nutrition situation in Cambodia; considers the reasons that economic growth doesn't necessarily coincide with a reduction in undernutrition; then sets out some possible next steps and recommendations for various stakeholders engaged in public health work in Cambodia.
This report analyses the complex web of financing for nutrition, the ‘nutrition aid architecture,’ in the world today. Presently, there are a number of exciting new financing mechanisms being developed and we consider these, alongside current mechanisms, to determine how nutrition finance can be expanded, so as to prevent millions of children dying every year. RESULTS has produced this report as a contribution to the debate on how to improve the flow of resources and increase the amount of funding going to this essential area.
This report discusses the drivers of progress in tackling multiple forms of malnutrition in these three countries: Vietnam, Uganda, and Kenya. It also identifies some of the challenges which pose as barriers to sustaining progress. Finally, it makes recommendations for key stakeholders such as governments of high burden countries, donor governments, development partners, and civil society, on their role to promote further success.
