Abstract

In Mali, malnutrition is a public health problem as it is in most countries of the Sahel band. Several strategies have been used at different levels of the health pyramid. These strategies often omit the involvement of certain key actors. The experience of involving the sub-prefects and prefect of the Kayes health district in nutrition activities has led to a real change in the implementation of community activities and the mobilization of local resources for nutrition financing. This experience is discussed in this article in order to draw the attention of the various stakeholders in the implementation of development activities in nutrition in order to further mobilize these actors who constitute real opportunities for the success of projects and programs.

Keywords: Nutrition; Governance; Local Actors; Resource Mobilization; Sub-prefect/Prefect
