Implementation Science Collaboration in East Africa

The three-Country Assessment of Nutrition and WASH Vulnerabilities Among the Urban Poor in East Africa assessment used desk review and case study methodology to identify and synthesize literature, polices, available data, strategies, partners, platforms, and contextual factors influencing child and adolescent health in poor urban areas of Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda. The country teams each used a similar design to allow for a cross-country synthesis of findings, which was guided by the UNICEF framework for undernutrition. While the situation differed across countries, there was a general dearth of urban-specific policies, data, evidence, and relatively few interventions targeting nutrition/WASH among poor populations. To learn more, see the cross-country briefs on this page.
