Technical Assistance for Integrating Nutrition to Address Childhood Obesity in El Salvador

The Technical Assistance Partnership – Expert Deployment Mechanism (TAP-EDM) collaborates with Canadian Technical Advisor, Johanna Sanchez and the Government of El Salvador to support the Ministry of Health and the Office of the First Lady in developing a Child Nutrition Strategy. The primary goal is to prevent, address, and diminish overweight and obesity among Salvadoran children on a national scale that will consider the distinctive nutritional profiles within the country groups.

This initiative aims to implement comprehensive, sustainable, and multisectoral strategies. Additionally, it seeks to strengthen dialogue and consensus among key partners involved in the strategy’s development—covering the public, private, and civil society sectors using international standards, best practices, and lessons learned.
