This two page briefing provides an overview of the work of the
DFID-funded Working to Improve Nutrition in Northern Nigeria (WINNN)
programme and the Operations Research and Impact Evaluation (ORIE)
ORIE is an independent component of WINNN, which is seeking to improve
the nutritional status of 6.2 million children under five in five states
in northern Nigeria: Kebbi, Katsina, Jigawa, Zamfara, and Yobe. WINNN's
interventions include micronutrient supplementation, infant and young
child feeding, community management of acute malnutrition, and advocacy
to improve nutrition policies, coordination, planning and funding.
ORIE was set up to determine the impact and cost-effectiveness of the
WINNN programme, as well as undertaking research in order to recommend
context specific solutions to key challenges identified by partners and
service users to maximise the programme's impact on nutrition outcomes.
ORIE's activities include evidence review, mixed methods impact
evaluation, operational research into WINNN interventions, costing and
cost effectiveness analysis, gender analysis and research capacity
