ANRiN is a 21 year Federal government response facilitated by the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) at Primary Health Care level in a Phased Approach: 2019-2040 to reduce chronic malnutrition (stunting and micro nutrient deficiencies) and thus reduce maternal and child mortality rates and over time, increase school completion and performance, and improve labour force productivity.

The Project objective is to increase utilization of quality, cost-effective nutrition services for pregnant and lactating women, adolescent girls and children under five years in Abia, Akwa Ibom, Gombe, Kaduna, Kano, Kogi, Kwara, Nasarawa, Niger, Oyo and Plateau States (Phase 1: 5 year duration: 2019-2023).

ANRiN is designed to achieve a balance between the urgent need to protect Nigerian children from the devastating and life-long effects of stunting through the scale-up of cost-effective interventions and strengthening the stewardship role of the Federal and State governments in Nigeria to plan, finance, implement, monitor and learn from large-scale nutrition programs through Disbursement Linked Indicators (DLIs) to incentivize delivery of nutrition sensitive ante-natal care for pregnant women through public primary health care centers

NPHCDA will be providing technical support to the Akwa Ibom State Primary Health Care Development Agencies (AKSPHCDA) on the World Bank Mission towards Accelerating Nutrition Results in Nigeria.
