Suaahara Bhanchhin Aama Activities Integration Guide
Suaahara was a five year (2011-2016) project funded by USAID aimed to improve the nutritional status of women and children in 41 districts of Nepal. The project focused on improving health and nutrition behaviors at the household level through promotion of Essential Nutrition and Hygiene Actions (EN/HA), particularly Maternal, Infant and Young Child Nutrition (MIYCN), and addressing other determinants of under-nutrition, such as availability of and access to food, hygiene, quality of health care, child spacing and socio-cultural factors including gender and marginalization.
Suaahara was implemented by a consortium of partner organizations led by Save the Children.
Suaahara developed and implemented the integrated Bhanchhin Aama (“Mother knows best”) cohesive platform which linked varied messages and reinforced recommended actions through a wide array of channels including mass media (radio programs, radio spots and billboards), print, and social mobilization.
Suaahara developed this Guide to help integrate activities at individual, household and community level through the Bhanchhin Aama (“Mother says”) integration campaign.
