Analysis of DFID-Zimbabwe Partners and Interventions Targeting Nutrition Components Towards Developing a Roadmap for Change

Year : March - September 2020
Countries : Zimbabwe

CHC supported Department for International Development (DFID) Zimbabwe to understand how effectively partners are achieving an impact on nutrition through their delivery, design, monitoring systems and strategic approach to coordination with other actors. This was done through a technical assessment of the delivery approaches and standards DFID’s implementing partners (IPs) have used to date, and subsequently identifying recommended changes or new catalytic avenues in the operational, internal or intervention design which should help improve health services and nutrition outcomes.

CHC also supported UNICEF to ‘tell the nutrition story more effectively’ through data and reporting, building on initial discussions held in Phase 1. This was done through provision of technical assistance on ways to ensure more coherent reporting, data coordination and pointed out potential missed synergies on nutrition activities and results (SRHS).

CHC also supported discussions on integrating the Care Group Model (CGM) within the Ministry of Health to determine:

  • What is the best way to strengthen the ‘Baby First’ model adopted by the Ministry through more effective community health systems.
  • Which elements are most critical for child health and family nutrition. This was carried out through consulting and convening relevant actors to critically examine how CGM should form part of the community health system and what is the best approach to run these to help the Ministry take these on, especially in the absence of significant funding.
