Project Information

The project aimed to reduce child mortality and morbidity and improve physical growth, cognitive development and future productivity of 1.8 million children in poor provinces; and improve impact, reach and cost-effectiveness of Government investments to improve nutrition; including the reduction of anemia and vitamin A deficiencies.

Its key performance indicators were:

  • Building the capacity of the National Institute of Nutrition (NIN), 18 provinces, 173 districts, and 27,498 local village health posts along with community volunteers and non-government organizations (The Women’s Union and others) for sustained community-based delivery of vitamin A and de-worming tablets twice annually.
  • Expansion of the biannual vitamin A capsule campaigns to an additional 720,000 children from current coverage of approximately 900,000 children (those in cohort 6–36 months) to coverage of 1.8 million children (for cohort 6–60 months).
  • Biannual distribution of deworming medication (mebendazole) to benefit approximately 1.8 million children in the cohort 12–60 months of age (currently none are receiving).
  • Reduction in the prevalence of vitamin A deficiency (50%), anemia (75%), and parasitic infection prevalence (40–80%) in project areas.
  • Establishment of a sustained government financing for biannual distribution of vitamin A capsules to all children 6–60 months and de-worming tablets for children 12–60 months.
