Civil Society Alliance for Nutrition Uganda, Uganda

About

Civil Society Alliance for Nutrition Uganda (CISANU) is a professional organization legally registered in Uganda in 2017 as a non-profit organization.

CISANU has national and regional activities as an alliance of organizations working with government to create and strengthen the coordination of a Civil Society platform to champion Nutrition advocacy.

It was founded as a result of the need for a multi-stakeholder response to address the nutrition challenge in Uganda through the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement. Being part of the Global SUN - movement founded on the principle that all people have the right to food and good nutrition, CISANU has brought together multiple organizations from both nutrition sensitive, nutrition specific and Nutrition governance sectors.

The Alliance operates its activities under the vision: “A Uganda free of Malnutrition”                                                                 

Mission Statement: “To cultivate and coordinate civil society efforts to fight malnutrition in Uganda through supporting the design and implementation  of appropriate interventions , promotion of effective communication , advocacy, social mobilization, research and accountability”.

This makes CISANU a highly effective advocacy platform that works across multiple sectors in an effort to end malnutrition by use of various media platforms including radio and television. It engages key stakeholders such as parliamentarians and communities and participates in global conferences to highlight key nutrition issues.

CISANU ensures the voice of civil society is strong and coherent when it comes to scaling up nutrition in Uganda.

Aims of CISANU are;


  • Increase research, know-how and communication output in nutrition and related health interventions.
