Maternal and Child Nutrition and Health Results Project

The overall objective of the project is to improve health and nutrition outcomes among women and children in the least served Regions. The Second Additional Financing (AF2) is an International Development Association (IDA) Grant (US$4.3 million equivalent) and IDA Credit (US$3.2 million equivalent) that aims to mitigate effects of economic hardships on health, nutrition and food security through the introduction of new activities as part of project restructuring and scaled-up activities to enhance the project’s impact and development effectiveness of a well-performing project. This will include: (i) unconditional cash transfers to vulnerable households; (ii) quality of care improvements; (iii) expansion of community food and nutrition security interventions; and (iv) expansion of social and behavior change communication activities under components 1, 2 and 3 of the project.
