EU-UNICEF programme against undernutrition

The EU has engaged to offer €41 million over four years to fund  programmes in Bangladesh, the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, Indonesia, the Lao People’s Democratic Republic  and the Philippines, as well as Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Mali and Uganda, UNICEF announced on Thursday December 6. The aim is to improve nutrition security for children during the first 1,000 days of life, including pregnancy.
The EU-funded programme will focus on high-level policy engagement, as well as making sure that nutrition goals are incorporated into health, development and agricultural sectors.
It will also feature low-cost, high-impact interventions, including promoting the use of available foods and resources, breastfeeding, distribution of vitamin and mineral supplements, appropriate complementary foods, fortification of staple foods and integrated management of acute malnutrition.
