For over 25 years, the Nevin Scrimshaw International Nutrition Foundation (INF) has been one of the only foundations to work with developing country scientists to provide support, training and educational capacity building in the area of nutrition research. The INF has been fortunate to maintain a consistent level of programs, fellowships and publications with the generous support from foundations and corporate sponsors.
In recent years, we have embraced a public-private partnership (PPP) model, in which INF provides expertise and competence in capacity building programs and research, with the collaboration and input from private sector partners. The PPP model offers benefits to all parties involved, through shared resources and increased access to other public or private sector agencies, NGOs and new markets.
The INF also accepts support to organize and provide advisory and consulting services to developing country national institutions and governments, international agencies, and non-governmental organizations. These services include policy formulation, advocacy, complex intervention planning, and program assessment and evaluation, as well as other nutrition-related public health activities.
If you are interested in consulting services or a PPP corporate partnership with INF, please contact us at email@example.com.
