Using implementation research to strengthen nutrition interventions

Using implementation research to strengthen nutrition interventions

Abstract

Despite best efforts, significant gaps persist between global nutrition targets and actual achievements. These gaps reflect the well-recognised implementation challenge in nutrition – the gap between knowledge of what works and the implementation of proven interventions to achieve coverage and impact at scale. Implementation science and research can help identify and address challenges to implementation. This session will focus on the role of implementation research for strengthening the planning, delivery, or scale up of nutrition interventions.
