SPRING has developed a simple and easy-to-use toolkit for mapping the nutrition workforce within the health sector. The purpose of this assessment is to collect data on nutrition-specific actions performed by health workers at different levels with the health care service-delivery system. The toolkit then guides stakeholders in the development of tables and graphs that can be used for identifying training gaps related to nutrition-specific actions, improving planning and delivery of those actions, strengthening design and delivery of competency-based training programs, and advocating for nutrition workforce recruitment, deployment, and capacity-building.
