The Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock in Samfya District has changed its approach in the goat pass-on-gift intervention area to make the programme more effective and sustainable to the beneficiaries.

The Nutrition Cooperate Walk recently held in Mbala District of Northern province highlighted a number of issues which are of utmost importance to the improving of nutrition in the district.

In a speech delivered on behalf of the Traditional Leaders, Senior Chief Mwamba mentioned some of the key roles Traditional Leaders play in Nutrition activities.

Some of the roles include how Traditional Leaders reduce traditional beliefs that affect nutrition.

He mentioned that Traditional leaders engage community members to grow and consume locally available diverse foods.

The First 1000 Most Critical Days Programme in Samfya District of Luapula Province continues to score success in reducing child stunting levels by way of various interventions being implemented in the district by the National Food and Nutrition Commission (NFNC).
