About

In response to low socio-economic indicators, the broad and multi-faceted program targets the “mother” to improvement of her nutrition status while pregnant and that of her child after delivery. The joint nutrition program will take place in four districts where other three inter-related joint programs will be implemented. In 2010, the program will address micronutrient deficiencies and chronic malnutrition among children below 2 years; reduce child mortality due to acute malnutrition; safeguard the health, nutrition and well-being of food insecure PLHIV and TB patients on antiretroviral and TB treatment; and strengthen surveillance systems for an effective management of nutrition data. The program will be implemented in four districts and will complement other joint programs being supported by the UN system in those districts.
