Transform Nutrition is a 5-year project implemented in 12 high priority districts in Nampula province. The project started at the end of September. The overall goal of Transform Nutrition is to provide the Government with a tested, holistic and gender-transformative model for achieving improvements in nutritional outcomes for pregnant lactating women, adolescent girls, and children under two years.
The target to improve the nutritional status of 118,000 pregnant, lactating women, 260,000 adolescent girls, and 165,000 children under 2. The project is implemented by a consortium of 5 organisations led by ADPP.
The project includes a broad set of activities designed to address the complex interactions between food, health, sanitation and hygiene and education and their combined impact on people’s nutrition and health. This approach is combined with a behaviour change strategy designed to improve and sustain changes in individual behaviours.
