Learning Brief: Integrated Programming Reduces Malnutrition, Builds Strong Families and Reinforces Social Cohesion

This learning brief focuses on the USAID/Nutrition and Hygiene project’s (Projet Nutrition et Hygiène) integrated approach to improving nutrition among pregnant and lactating women and children under two years of age. The project was organized around the first 1,000 Days approach to support caregivers in the community. The support includes encouraging caregivers to grow and feed their families nutrient-rich foods, improving hygiene practices, and fostering health seeking behaviors that address malnutrition in a timely manner. This is appropriate for internal and external audiences and can be used by new projects and proposal teams to design new projects.
