Despite progress made on health outcomes over time, malnutrition in Murang’a County remains a major public health problem. However, the county government has demonstrated political commitment for preventing malnutrition by investing in the scale-up of low-cost high-impact nutrition interventions.

With the support of Nutrition International, county leadership and nutrition stakeholders, Murang’a County has developed the County Nutrition Action Plan (CNAP) 2020-2025, which sets ambitious targets for the scale-up of nutrition interventions over the next five years. This Investment Case highlights the potential health impacts and economic benefits of scaling up the low-cost high-impact nutrition-specific interventions included in the Murang’a County CNAP.
