The Government of Malawi is committed to improving the food security and nutrition of its population. In 1986, a high level Symposium on Nutrition was held for all Principal Secretaries to discuss the magnitude and nature of the nutrition problems in the country. A key recommendation from this Symposium was that a Food Security and Nutrition Unit (FSNU) be established within the Department of Economic Planning and Development in the Office of the President and Cabinet. This Unit would be responsible for maintaining an overview of food security and nutrition related policies, undertake policy analysis, formulate policy and disseminate relevant information to the appropriate authorities.
