Maternal, Child Health and Nutrition Project
The Maternal, Child Health and Nutrition Project, funded by ADRA Netherlands, is improving health outcomes for young children and pregnant and lactating mothers in the Mahottari district of Madhesh Pradesh, where there are high levels of malnutrition. Through this project, we are providing technical assistance at the national level and strengthening screening and growth monitoring services at the local level by providing ‘anthropometric nutrition assessment’ equipment, infrastructure upgradation to stablish nutrition corner centre(NCC) and outpatient therapy centre (OTC) and training to health facilities. We are also educating mothers about nutrition and breastfeeding and working with the local agriculture sector to enable access to locally available foods to diversify diets among poor, food insecure, and vulnerable households.
