Nutrition assessment, counseling, and support (NACS) Strategy. Formerly called “Food by Prescription” (FBP), NACS has become an effective and replicable approach for meeting the nutritional needs of malnourished people living with HIV in clinical settings, significantly enhancing the care and treatment provided. In 2009, FANTA drafted a strategy for Côte d’Ivoire to guide selection of NACS program sites, program scale-up, selection and procurement of specialized food products, development of eligibility and exit criteria, targeting, and staffing and capacity strengthening.
