Dear Desmond,

The Essential Nutrition Actions (ENA), is a package of actions recommended by WHO to reduce infant and child mortality, improve physical and mental growth and development, and improve productivity, http://www.who.int/nutrition/publications/infantfeeding/essential_nutrition_actions/en/

SUN (Scaling Up Nutrition) is a global movement led by countries to prioritise efforts to address malnutrition through policy development and mobilisation of resources. The SUN in outline brief gives a brief overview of the Movement, how countries are scaling up nutrition and the role of the different stakeholders. The Essential Nutrition Actions feature within the policies and plans of different countries.

The SUN website http://scalingupnutrition.org/ has a wealth of information and here is a direct link to the page about the SUN country approach which explains its four key processes, http://scalingupnutrition.org/about/sun-country-approach

I hope this is useful.

Best wishes,
Tamsin
