Learning Brief: Strengthening WASH Approaches to Improve Nutritional Status among Women and Children in Sikasso, Mali

This learning brief describes the USAID/Nutrition and Hygiene project (Projet Nutrition et Hygiène)'s WASH strategy focused on community and social behavior change. Undernutrition disproportionately affects the rural poor, trapping families in a vicious cycle of disease and poverty. The project promoted an integrated nutrition and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) approach among target communities to improve nutritional status of children under age 5 and pregnant and lactating women.
