The purpose of this TAN project country brief is to illustrate the importance of impactful technical assistance for achieving better nutrition outcomes. It draws on multiple sources of information, including technical assistance reports, surveys, government documents, and external assessments. This brief highlights how Nutrition International’s technical assistance has contributed to reinvigorating the nutrition agenda in the Philippines, supporting multiple levels of government to develop and effectively implement national and local multi-sectoral nutrition plans.

Following wide consultation across the Scaling up Nutrition (SUN) Movement, a new Strategy was agreed by the SUN Movement Lead Group at their annual meeting, held 7 December 2020. This document provides a brief oversight to complement the comprehensive Strategy document and its annexes.

This World Bank report presents a comprehensive analysis of undernutrition in the Philippines. It describes high rates of undernutrition among Filipino children and provides evidence of why it is critical for the government of the Philippines to prioritize tackling this persistent challenge. The report assesses the determinants and causes of childhood undernutrition and reviews current policies and programs directed at addressing this problem.

While nutrition programs abound, a lack of cohesive planning and implementation has prevented a more rapid elimination of malnutrition among Filipino children. See how Zuellig Family Foundation’s pilot nutrition program, in partnership with Kristian Gerhard Jebsen Foundation, accelerated the decline in stunting and wasting in a rural town. The program helped health and nutrition leaders to work together strategically while also improving the capabilities of frontline health and nutrition workers.
