Nutri-Salud Contributes Article to USAID "Learning in Action" Series

The Nutri-Salud: Community Nutrition and Health project recently contributed an article to USAID's Learning Lab's "Learning in Action" series, which intends to paint a more detailed picture of what learning looks like in practice. Following a previous article written by the USAID Mission in Guatemala, the Nutri-Salud article offers insights from the implementing partner perspective.

In an engaging question-and-answer format, Nutri-Salud Chief of Party Elena Hurtado discusses how the project has embedded collaboration and learning within its implementation as it seeks to expand coverage of quality, integrated primary health care services and engage communities and local government in improved health and nutrition.

A key component of the project's quality improvement approach is APRECIE (Aprendizaje Colaborativo e Intercambio de Evidencia y Experiencia), which stands for Collaborative Learning and Exchange of Evidence and Experience and translates to the word "appreciate" in English. In the APRECIE methodology, evidence and experience are gathered through participatory data collection methods for decision-making about program and performance support priorities.
