Nutrition Programme

Through our Nutrition Programme, we provide all pregnant women and adolescent girls with micronutrients, Vitamin A, and information on proper feeding to ensure that a foetus is protected and insured from malnutrition and disease. This includes the first 1000 Golden Days of a child’s life, which covers immunisation and deworming, and community management of childhood malnutrition and illnesses. UNICEF also works to prevent diseases related to iodine deficiency by supporting the nationwide promotion of iodised salt, with an emphasis on regions where coverage is low.
