The project is designed to strengthen country government’s ability to combat disease and mortality rates, associated with undernutrition of the most disadvantaged women and children. The Accelerating Nutrition Improvements project aims to scale-up direct evidence-based nutrition interventions in three high-burden countries in Sub-Saharan Africa that have joined the Scaling Up Nutrition movement.
