Booklet of Key Essential Nutrition Actions Messages

The Essential Nutrition Actions (ENA) framework is an operational framework for managing the advocacy, planning and delivery of an integrated package of preventive nutrition actions encompassing infant and young child feeding (IYCF), micronutrients and women’s nutrition. Using multiple contact points, it targets health services and behavior change communication support to women and young children during the first 1,000 days of life – from conception through the first two years of life.

The Booklet of Key ENA Messages illustrates the key ENA messages and can be used by those implementing and supporting health, nutrition, and food security programs for improving nutrition practices among pregnant and lactating mothers and children under two. It can be a resource for training community or facility-based workers or for promoting behavior change at the household level. The goal of this booklet is to make available a harmonized set of messages across all implementing partners working across various programs and regions in a targeted country.
