Suaahara Nutrition Program Videos

The Suaahara (“good nutrition”)program works with the Government of Nepal’s existing systems and supports the Government in addressing undernutrition and related health issues of women and children under-two years of age. At the community level, Suaahara mobilizes both health and non-health sectors such as community health workers, female community health volunteers, mothers groups, social mobilizers, agricultural extension workers and citizen awareness centers to bring about positive behavior change.

Working through multiple sectors (e.g., health, agriculture, and water, sanitation and hygiene) and through national and local Government structures, Suaahara is dedicated to improving the health and nutritional status of mothers and young children during the 1,000 days Suaahara Program.

Suaahara uses a rigorous monitoring and evaluation system in order to assess the impact of the multi-sector approach to addressing stunting.

These videos demonstrate proper food preparation, nutrition information, and care of livestock:
