With a rapidly growing population, evolving food systems, and high rates of urbanization, Nigeria is encountering significant changes, many of which impact the national nutrition landscape.

Transform Nutrition is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation with support from A4NH, and is led by the International Food Policy Research Institute.
