Project Example

Suaahara Technical Posters (Fact Sheets)

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.

The innovations and lessons learned from this uniquely integrated program was shared and distributed in an International Conference. The following technical posters / fact sheets were distributed at the conference – all of the fact sheets are combined in one PDF attached to this page:
