REACH began activities in Mozambique in July 2012 at the invitation of the Ministry of Health.
One of REACH’s central roles is to support the Government in the implementation of the Multisectoral Action Plan for the Reduction of Chronic Undernutrition (PAMRDC) for 2011-2014/20. PAMRDC is a national framework of policies aiming to accelerate the reduction of chronic undernutrition in children under five.
In particular, REACH provides technical support to the Technical Secretariat for Food and Nutrition Security (SETSAN), which falls under the Ministry of Agriculture, as coordinator of the PAMRDC and in facilitating the PARMDC Technical Group. REACH also supports SETSAN’s advocacy efforts to place nutrition high in the political agenda.
