Priority Interventions to Improve Maternal and Child Diets in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia- Maternal and Child Nutrition

Nutrition-sensitive interventions to improve overall diet quality are increasingly needed to improve maternal and child health. This study demonstrates feasibility of a structured process to leverage local expertise in formulating programs tailored for current circumstances in South Asia and Africa. The results, based on a series of stakeholder workshops, demonstrate that a participatory process can help local experts identify their own priorities for future investments, as a first step in a novel process of rigorous, transparent, and independent priority setting to improve diets among those at greatest risk of undernutrition.
