The Governor of Enugu State Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has pledged to ratify the State Multi-sectoral Strategic Plan of Action on Nutrition aimed at curbing malnutrition in the state in line with the adoption of the National Policy on Food and Nutrition and domestication of the National Strategic Plan of Action on Nutrition by his administration.

Ugwuanyi made the promise during a joint advocacy visit by the UNICEF Enugu State Field Office led by the Chief Field Officer, Juliet Chiluwe, and the State Committee on Food and Nutrition SCFN led by the State Commissioner for Budget and Planning, David Ugwunta.

He reiterated his administration’s commitment to the fight against malnutrition in Enugu State by continuously supporting nutrition interventions, particularly through the FCDO/UNICEF Progressing Action for Resilient Systems for Nutrition through Innovation and Partnership Parsnip program in the state.

Chiluwe, in her speech, commended Ugwuanyi for the milestone achievements of his administration in the health sector, especially with the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, disclosing that the essence of the visit was to discuss the need to improve nutrition for women and children.

The Commissioner for Health Emmanuel Obi, on his part, said the visit was paramount in addressing the urgent need to consider, approve and implement the state policy document on nutrition and to ensure that the outcome of the engagement was included in the state budget.
