Please mark your calendars (22 June - 12:00 GMT) and plan to join the Global Health, Nutrition and HIV Community of Practice discussion about the ENRICH Programme! The Enhancing Nutrition Services to Improve Maternal and Child Health in Africa and Asia (ENRICH) is a multi-year, multi-country programme funded by Global Affairs Canada that aims to improve the health and nutrition status of mothers, newborns and children in select regions of Bangladesh, Kenya, Myanmar, Pakistan and Tanzania. ENRICH is implemented by World Vision Canada and The Micronutrient Initiative.
The goal of ENRICH is to contribute to reduction of maternal and child mortality in by addressing issues critical to the health of mothers, newborns and young children. The program seeks to achieve this goal through strengthening of health systems with an emphasis on community systems, improving nutrition of pregnant women (PW), infants and young children during the first 1,000 days from conception to 24 months of age, and ensuring accountability of results at all levels. ENRICH takes a comprehensive approach to improve delivery of essential nutrition services: increasing production, and consumption of nutritious foods and micronutrient supplements by women in child bearing age, pregnant women, children under five; and strengthening governance, policy and public engagement of Maternal, Newborn, Child Health (MNCH) in Canada and target countries.
