SPRING/Bangladesh Final Country Report


SPRING/Bangladesh implemented an innovative, scalable, and sustainable community-based, multi-channel, integrated nutrition program between April 2012 and June 2017.

During this five-year period, the project reached more than 125,000 pregnant and lactating women and their children through its farmer nutrition schools (FNS) approach, and nearly 6,500 FNS were established over this period. Further, SPRING trained and provided supportive supervision to more than 4,000 frontline health staff from over 1,400 health facilities, as well as nearly 1,000 frontline agriculture staff. We also brought the GOB departments of family planning, health services, and agriculture extension together for the first time around the issue of community nutrition. Improved nutrition practices were sustained at the community level a year or more after the FNS work had finished, an indication of the long-term impact of our work. There was also strong evidence of spillover to non-beneficiaries in SPRING's working areas. JSI/SPRING Project. 2017.
