The briefs include recently released findings showing that Alive & Thrive’s large scale behavior change programs resulted in rapid improvements in infant and young child feeding practices. View the updated briefs now:

Focusing on maternal nutrition in Bangladesh

Following the success of our comprehensive infant young child feeding program, Alive & Thrive has transitioned to a new phase of activities in Bangladesh. We are now focused on improving maternal nutrition–a critical part of the 1,000 day window of opportunity to positively shape a child’s future. We have started collaborating with BRAC and other partners in four districts to integrate maternal nutrition interventions into maternal, neonatal, and child health (MNCH) programs.
