The Working to Improve Nutrition in Northern Nigeria (WINNN) is an ambitious £52 million, six-year (2011-2017), UK Department for International Development (DFID) funded programme to improve maternal and child nutrition in five states of northern Nigeria (Jigawa, Zamfara, Kebbi, Katsina, and Yobe). WINNN was designed to support the piloting of a set of evidence-based nutrition-specific interventions and to support institutionalisation of the interventions within routine healthcare.
This report integrates the findings of five years of research and evaluation conducted by the Operations Research and Impact Evaluation (ORIE) project, led by Oxford Policy Management (OPM) on the WINNN programme.
The purpose of the report is to provide a high-level summary of WINNN’s achievements during the period of the evaluation (2013-2016), and an overview of the key messages and recommendations that emerge from ORIE’s research. This is done with reference to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development/Development Assistance Committee (OECD/DAC) evaluation criteria (effectiveness, impact, sustainability, efficiency, relevance).
