Mother and Child Health Care Programme-A Joint Review of the MCHC programme by MoHP, MoE and WFP
Abstract:
Government of Nepal, being aware of the poor nutritional status of its population, particularly of children and women, is continually developing appropriate policies from time to time and designing and implementing programmes to improve the nutrition situation. The World Food Programme (WFP) has been operating in Nepal since 1963 and responding to changing food security needs and national priorities. One of the programmes implemented by WFP in partnership with the Government of Nepal has been nutritious food assistance to children in the primary schools and Early Childhood Development Centers (ECDs), and additional food assistance to girl children as an incentive in the primary schools in order to help increase school attendance of the girl children in partnership with Ministry of Education (MoE). Thus, the National Nutrition Policy and Strategy (NNPS) developed by the Ministry of Health and Population (MoHP), it required assistance to provide the fortified food supplement to Pregnant and Lactating Women (PLW) and children less than 3 years of age. Three agencies, WFP, MoE and MoHP agreed to work in partnership with each other to implement the Mother and Child Health Care Programe (MCHC) in Nepal. #Mother #Child #Health
