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.

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.
