In 2015, Alive & Thrive began testing the feasibility of integrating a comprehensive package of maternal nutrition interventions into the maternal, neonatal, and child health (MNCH) programs of BRAC, a non-governmental organization based in Bangladesh that has partnered with Alive & Thrive since 2009. (See program overview brief here.)
The resources below provide MNCH program leaders and implementers with tools for delivering maternal nutrition programs at scale. The materials were originally developed in 2016 by the Government of Bangladesh, BRAC, and Alive & Thrive. The program was funded by Global Affairs Canada.
This brief outlines how to deliver nutrition interventions as key components of MNCH programs, including a summary of the operational strategy that Alive & Thrive used to achieve scale and impact in Bangladesh.
Alive & Thrive used the tools presented in this document to implement its maternal nutrition program from 2015-2016. These tools are available on aliveandthrive.org and can be adapted for use in other contexts.
