SPRING/Ghana: Helping Health Workers and Caregivers Improve Nutrition through Multi-sectoral Programming


The leading causes of stunting and anemia are poor diets, especially low dietary diversity, and poor sanitation infrastructure and practices that lead to intestinal infections, which interfere with achieving and sustaining nutrition gains. To combat these problems, we identified behaviors across the nutrition, WASH, and agriculture sectors that—when synthesized into a holistic approach and implemented together in target communities—can contribute to improved nutrition outcomes.

To support the Government of Ghana in alleviating the high rates of stunting and anemia, we implemented a multisectoral program, combining the rollout of critical Ghana Health Service (GHS) activities with additional SPRING-led initiatives. JSI/SPRING Proect. 2017.
