Nutrition

Nutrition is a critical part of health and development. Better nutrition is related to improved infant, child and maternal health, stronger immune systems, safer pregnancy and childbirth, lower risk of non-communicable diseases (such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease), and longevity.

We are actively working to:

  • Provide first aid training to individuals in areas, in order to increase success of first response
  • Increase focus on nutrition and implement treatments to overcome nutritional deficiency
  • Assess level of malnutrition in hard-to-reach areas and treat moderate to severe cases with supplements
  • Raise community awareness about communicable disease
  • Raise awareness to prevent and treat malnutrition cases and refer non-malnutrition cases
  • Distribute food supplements and specific malnutrition-based treatment
  • Support IYCF centers specific for breastfeeding
