Under the Accelerating Reduction of Undernutrition in Ethiopia programme (£49m, 2013-2018), we supported the transition of service delivery for nutrition screening, Vitamin A supplementation and deworming from resource-intensive donor-financed campaign-based delivery, into fully government funded routine service delivery in the four regions with the highest rates of stunting in Ethiopia.
DFID continues to support the Government of Ethiopia in delivering nutrition programmes as part of routine heath service delivery. Currently the Sustaining and Accelerating Primary Health in Ethiopia programme (£250m,2015-2020) is supporting the first 1000+ days nutrition initiative, the provision of micronutrient supplies and implementation of the Seqota declaration. This aims to end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture in the worst affected parts of the country. Our Building Resilience in Ethiopia Programme (£262m, 2017-2022) is also working to respond to nutrition emergencies, reducing reliance on parallel humanitarian response.
