The History of Nutrition at USAID: Spotlight

Capacity Development

Continued long-term support for the development of human and institutional capacity is a vital component of sustaining the results of USAID’s investments well beyond the end of USAID assistance. Capacity building has been an important element of USAID’s nutrition work through short-term, in-service and preservice training, and academic degree education, for millions of local health professionals, farmers, community health workers and other key nutritionrelated personnel in USAID-supported countries. In addition, USAID has invested considerable resources in trainings and continued learning opportunities for employees, and has facilitated nutrition capacity building and cross-country learning and exchange for entire regions, particularly Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean.
