The Technical Secretariat of Food Security and Nutrition (SETSAN), in collaboration with JICA, organized the first MENU planning and coordination meeting on 30th November 2021. The conference aims to promote a multi-sectoral approach for nutrition improvement.

For nutrition improvement, a multi-sectoral approach is crucial. It is expected to contribute significantly to improving the nutritional status of people, not only through support from the medical and health sectors, but also gricultural, water, and sanitation sectors.

In Mozambique, the MENU program is aimed at a multi-sectoral approach. MENU is the abbreviation of "Multi-sectoral Enhancement for Nutrition Upgrading." This program is implemented jointly by the Mozambican Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Public Works, Housing and Water Resources, and JICA.

It is a program to promote multi-sectoral collaboration among these three ministries for nutrition improvement in Niassa Province.

Representatives from the Ministry of Agreculture, the Ministry of Health, and the Ministry of Public Works, Housing and Water Resources attended the meeting.

It was a good opportunity to learn about activities in other ministries for eachothers.
