Despite abundant scientific knowledge about best practices to prevent or ameliorate the most pressing malnutrition problems, low, middle and high-income countries often fail substantially to scale up effective programs as result of lack of evidence-informed systems, appropriate policy tools and sustainable implementation.

Ending malnutrition depends on delivering integrated programs generated and implemented through evidence-informed advocacy, political will, legislation & policy, funding & cost, effective implementation of programs, behavior-change communication campaigns, monitoring & evaluation, and strategic coordination.

This workshop at this year's SUN Global Gathering from 5-7 November in Kathmandu, Nepal, aimed to highlight and share experiences from a comprehensive scientific participatory approach in the area of scaling up breastfeeding (bbf.yale.edu) recently implemented by 8 countries across 5 world regions, including Ghana, Myanmar and Germany. The participants were enabled to develop strategic scaling up plans for their national contexts.
