Subandoro, Ali Winoto
A high-quality health systems approach that integrates nutrition is vital to accelerate progress in nutrition and meet the sustainable development goals by 2030.High-quality health systems for nutrition include integrated service provision and supplies, performance monitoring, strategic purchasing, and functioning referral services. Underpinning these components are political leadership and commitment, well-defined quality metrics and quality and timely nutrition data, and an accountability system that nurtures demand for quality services, among others. Several World Bank and Global Financing Facility (GFF) - co-financed projects are investing in building high-quality health system foundations to improve the quality of nutrition services and can serve as examples for improving quality of nutrition care.
