1 Updates on IYCF- integrated with MNP & Child Grant, Vit A and GMP Programs 1 Pradiumna Dahal Nutrition Specialist, UNICEF

2 Vitamin A Coverage UNICEF will focus on under-reached and unreached children (children 6-11 months and children in given in urban areas) VAS modeling for 6-11 months children is proposed in Jumla, Kavre and Chitwan districts for aiming to scale up this approach to rest of country by 2017.

3 Protocol for Vit A Modeling The Routine Vit A Biannual Supplementation continued with BCC focus on urban/Children 6-11 months. After 6 months the child receive 100,000 IU vitamin A supplement (In HF or through FCHV- Only the first dose) Integrated with routine measles vaccination - If the child is fails to receive routine Vit A biannual supplementation The time gap should be more than 30 days

4 Anemia Prevalence High in Children: The Problem is serious among 6-23 months children Percent of children age 6-59 months with anemia Source: NDHS 2011

7 National Programme Feasibility study on MNP distribution in two districts, Makawanpur and Parsa Piloting of the MNP program (6 districts: 2010 Onwards) and roll out in 9 districts by 2012 Scale up of the MNP Programme by 2015 Phase I Phase II Phase III To Improve Anemia, Other micronutrient deficiencies and timely introduction of Complementary food IYCF Community Promotion linked with MNP

8 IYCF/MNP Program Goal To improve the nutritional status of children aged 6 to 24 months by reducing prevalence of anemia and by improving complementary feeding and care practices. Pilot Objectives  To identify an effective delivery mechanism to distribute MNPs integrated with IYCF counselling to children 6-24 months of age.  To use the findings of this pilot program to develop national strategy for nationwide scale up

9 Program Districts for Piloting- 6 districts Phase 1: Makwanpur (May, 2010); Palpa (June, 2010) Phase 2: Rasuwa (Sept, 2010); Gorkha (Jan, 2011) Phase 3: Rupandehi (May, 2011); Parsa (June, 2011)

14 Background Since 2009/10, - GoN- Child Cash Grant (CG) (NRs 200/child for maximum 2 children) is provided for each child in Karnali. Dalit families in rest of the country Disbursed through VDCs quarterly Meant to be utilized for the improvement of nutritional status of the targeted children. UNICEF- complemented Infant & Young Child Feeding (IYCF) training/Social mobilization in 4 districts IYCF PROMOTION LINKED WITH CHILD GRANT (IYCF/CG)

15 Objectives Improve Child Grant beneficiaries’ knowledge on IYCF, Hygiene and Sanitation and other key nutritional behaviours Assist mothers and caretakers to identify the best possible locally available food - to improve the nutritional status of the children Build capacity of health workers and volunteers on IYCF Strategies Advocacy: Capacity building Orientation: Process monitoring: BCC Evaluation

17 Challenges/Future direction Challenges Optimum utilization of the Cash Grant in improvement of nutritional status of targeted children. Easy access to nutritious food for buying. Focus for 2012 Monitoring of the IYCF/CG programme. Midline Evaluation of IYCF/CG Promotion of locally available foods. Sustainability - functioning/revitalization of the mother’s group meetings (MGM) and use of the VDC block grant. Airing of IYCF messages, performance of street drama and advocacy meetings at the ward level.

18 Updates in Growth Monitoring

19 Old Growth Monitoring Card New Growth Monitoring Card Unnecessarily covers under five children-not evidence based and also extra burden to health workers Uses -3SD for lower line-thus only identifies severe malnutrition, which defeats the purpose of GMP promotion and its too late for action
