GENDER EQUALITY AND SOCIAL INCLUSION FOR FOOD-AND NUTRITION- SECURITY IN NEPAL RESEARCH REPORT
PDF File Size: 2.5 MB | Download   
The World Bank (WB) continues to support the Government of Nepal’s (GON) thrust to improve the food and nutrition security of its people. It already has several major investments in agriculture and nutrition development programs, including Sunaula Hazar Din (SHD), a Community Action for Nutrition Project, and the Nepal Agriculture and Food Security Project (NAFSP). The World Bank initiated a behavior change communication and social marketing activity that examined the role of gender in correct breastfeeding practices (exclusive breastfeeding) and the proper and timely introduction of complementary feeding, Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF).
The assessment data showed two statistics that are contradictory. World Bank Data 2011 show 40.5 percent of Nepali children under the age of five suffered from stunting and 29.1 percent were underweight. However, the Mid-term Survey by the Nepal Family Health Project II shows that 90 percent of all women across all ethnic populations said they had breastfed their children (NFHP II. Mid-term Survey. 2010). Clinical research shows that exclusive breastfeeding for six months eliminates or reduces malnutrition, stunting, wasting, and underweight.
