Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Alliance is an umbrella of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in Rwanda promoting sensitive and specific nutrition interventions. It’s a member of the SUN movement, Global Civil Society Network. In 2014, 79 Civil Society Organizations in the fight against malnutrition in Rwanda endorsed the establishment of the Alliance, and is legally registered and certified by the Rwanda Governance Board. The primary purpose of SUN Alliance is to strengthen the coordination between nutrition actors from the Civil Society and academia. The coordination is aimed at creating an accountable system through tracking results and resources, aligning strategies and programs of its members with country plans to eliminate all forms of Malnutrition. This is not limited to Social Mobilization, Advocacy and Communication (SMAC) and research among others.

This approach is aimed at raising awareness about the vital importance of nutrition as a universal move; one that is integral to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to have a world without hunger and malnutrition. Malnutrition therefore being a threat and high on the global and national agenda, there is great need for greater coordination and optimal nutrition interventions. This however can only be possible through a multi-sectoral coordination of nutrition actors backed by increased financial investments. In this tone, SUN Alliance Rwanda seeks to extend this momentum by holding its 3rd general assembly, bringing together of over 100 CSOs of its members for sustainable and equitable scaling up of nutrition that delivers improved nutrition results for children, women, families and communities.
