This cooperative agreement will follow the R&I approach. This program is anticipated to be awarded in January 2022.
This position is subject to project award and funding and is anticipated to be based in Quelimane in the Zambezia Livelihood Zone.
The nutrition technical lead will provide technical oversight for program interventions targeting sustainable improvements in maternal nutrition, and improved nutrition among infants and young children under 2 years.

They also will oversee food commodity distribution to ensure maximum nutritional impact for girls/women of reproductive age, and infants and young children under the age of 2 years.
