The Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition in Jordan (JNIL) aims to generate evidence on the impact of USAID Jordan’s Community Health and Nutrition activity and build academic capacity to support research on optimal health and nutritional status of pregnant and lactating women (PLW) and children under two in Jordan. This will be achieved through successful implementation of two key objectives:
- Objective 1: includes a rigorous research agenda, including an impact evaluation of the impact of USAID Jordan’s Community Health and Nutrition (CHN) activity, and,
- Objective 2: aims at building individual and institutional capacity in Jordan to conduct and interpret research and train future nutritionists in the realm of maternal and infant young child nutrition.
The Jordan Nutrition Innovation Lab Fellowships Program
Last year, JNIL awarded two fellowships to Jordanian faculty, researchers, scientists, and graduate students conducting their master’s or PhD research to support optimal infant, young child, and maternal nutrition and health.
The application process for the 2023 Fellowship Program will be opening soon! Keep an eye out for the call for applications announcement.
