UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.
Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.
For every child, opportunity Tanzania is striving to achieve economic transformation and human development through industrialization in its development vision by 2025. Although good nutrition is a foundation for healthy individuals and human development, high levels of malnutrition including, stunting as high as 30%, micronutrient deficiencies and the emerging burden of overweight and obesity are significant obstacles to achieving the country’s human development goals. The country has made significant efforts to address malnutrition, including a Nutrition Compact, an accountability and transparency tool, established and signed for the first time in December 2017 between the Minister of State – PORALG and Regional Commissioners.

Available evidence indicates improvement in political engagement, governance, coordination, awareness, and accountability in nutrition. Documenting the compact is looking at the compact’s achievements, best practices, challenges, innovations, and untapped opportunities. It is with this in mind that the President’s Office – Regional Administration and Local Government (PORALG) with UNICEF support plans to document the compact’s achievements, good practices, learnings, and opportunities that can help accelerate the reduction of all forms of malnutrition in Tanzania

Although the implementation of the Nutrition Compact is likely to contribute to increased accountability, political leadership, governance, coordination, and community engagement in nutrition, its achievements have never been documented. Less is also known about good practices in implementing the Nutrition Compact at the sub-national level, as well as innovations, and opportunities that could help improve the implementation of the compact
