Key Messages for 1000 Special Days [Malawi]

These key messages were developed as part of a “1000 Special Days” campaign in Malawi to reduce stunting by caring for the pregnant woman, unborn child, and young child. The messages address maternal nutrition, infant and young child feeding, dietary diversification, micronutrients, and growth monitoring. The 1000 days represents the total of the 9 months of pregnancy and the life of the child up to 24 months. Included in the key messages about nutrition are messages about malaria prevention, vaccination, and HIV prevention.
