Nutrition Collaborative Research Support Program

Dates

Start Date: 10/01/2010
End Date: 09/30/2015

The US Government's upcoming 'Feed the Future' initiative supports a new paradigm that links agriculture with health strategies to address undernutrition in developing countries. This integrated approach aims to provide long term and sustainable solutions to undernutrition by addressing its determinants. The Nutrition CRSP will work with USAID missions, development partners and host countries through the 'Feed the Future Implementation Plan and Food Security Country Investment Plans' to determine the kinds of investments in agriculture, health and nutrition, institutional and human capacity development and policy development needed to achieve large scale improvements in a nation's health. The Nutrition CRSP is a program of 'research to-practice' that supports human and institutional capacity building for research and policy analysis in host countries, in partnership with local universities, research organizations, and centers of policy formulation within the government. It was launched in October 2010, and is managed by the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University, in partnership with the Schools of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University and Harvard, the College of Agriculture at Purdue University, the College of Agricultural, Environmental, and Natural Sciences at Tuskegee University, Development Alternatives Inc., the USAID Bureau for Food Security and USAID missions in Feed the Future focus countries.
