Poor nutrition is universally recognized as an underlying cause of mortality in children and as a major contributor to a number of health problems in all segments of the population. In order to better inform policy makers, planners and Programme officers on efforts being made to improve nutrition in Zambia, a monitoring and evaluation framework was developed by partners engaged in nutrition Programming under the auspices of the National Food and Nutrition Commission. The framework was used as a guide to assemble relevant information about the food, nutrition and health of the Zambian population and existing interventions for improving the nutritional health.
