This paper explores how to approach tracking nutrition spending in low- and middle-income countries, specifically (i) whether the National Health Account (NHA) framework, an internationally recognized methodology for comprehensively tracking spending within the health sector, might be used to track the health component of nutrition spending and (ii) whether an NHA-based methodology could be used to also track non-health sector nutrition spending.
