Protein Challenge is a Protein Pull media campaign supported by the United States Soybean Export Council (USSEC) and other partners, to create awareness about the prevalence, status and impact of protein deficiency in Nigeria.

To kick start the initiative, we commissioned a protein deficiency baseline study designed to empirically determine the current status and dimensions of protein deficiency in Nigeria and shed light on the food consumption patterns among Nigerians. Download survey report here

The monthly webinars provide a platform for connecting with relevant stakeholders.

Introduction

The Protein Challenge Webinar Series 6 seeks to draw attention to the urgent need for a protein-centred national nutrition policy to support and indeed give impetus to the growing but fragmented efforts to combat and curtail the rising incidence of protein deficiency and general malnutrition across the country.

Objectives:

  • To explore and draw government’s attention to the urgent need for a protein-centred national policy on nutrition.
  • To initiate conversations around the essential features and elements that such a national policy should cover.
  • To inspire a conversation amongst stakeholders in the health/nutrition sector.
  • To promote strategies that would help alleviate protein deficiency, with emphasis on protein-rich local food sources.
