NNSS Afghanistan Nutrition Bulletin ISSUE 4_May_2016

In March 2013 the Ministry of Public Health, WHO and UNICEF began operationalizing a sentinel site-based national nutrition surveillance system (NNSS) in Afghanistan in coordination and partnership with the Basic Package of Health Services (BPHS) and the Essential Package of Hospital Services (EPHS) implementers and other service providers. Funded by the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD), the project seeks to establish a sentinel site-based nutrition surveillance system that covers all 34 provinces of the country.
