Multisectoral Nutrition Assessment in Sri Lanka's Estate Sector

This report assessed the nutrition situation amongst residents of the "estate" or commercial farm sector, identified the main causes of nutritional deficiencies, as well as gaps in the provision of key nutrition-related services in Sri Lanka. The findings and recommendations can be used to inform policymakers and planners who are preparing strategic policies and can support effective multisectoral nutrition and health interventions. The two main objectives of the study were to assess the size, severity, and key determinants of undernutrition in Sri Lanka's estate sector, and to examine access to nutrition-related services.
