The National Information Platform for Nutrition (NIPN) is an initiative of Government of Uganda and the European Commission supported by the United Kingdom Department for International Development and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation being implemented in selected countries including Uganda. Therefore, the Delegation of the European Union in Uganda has funded a project to establish a Uganda National Information Platform for Nutrition (NIPN). The initiative aims to strengthen National capacity to make better use of existing information and data to inform policies, programmes and interventions in all sectors that could contribute to better nutrition for the Ugandan population. This process requires analysis of current policies and programmes to identify issues; a systematic review of existing information both Internationally and Nationally on the issue identified; and, when useful, the analysis of existing data from Uganda to shed light on nutrition. The project is being implemented by the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) in partnership with the Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBOS), and in collaboration with all the sectors involved in the Uganda Nutrition Action Plan. Under this project, the OPM will take lead in analysis of current policies, programmes and interventions and existing information with support from sectors, while UBOS will take lead in analyzing the existing data. To operationalize the NIPN, Office of the Prime Minister is recruiting several staff.
