THE POWER OF NUTRITION IS CONTRIBUTING TO THE GOVERNMENT OF CÔTE D'IVOIRE'S FIRST EVER LARGE-SCALE INVESTMENT IN NUTRITION

Programme Overview

The Power of Nutrition and the World Bank are supporting the Côte d’Ivoire government’s first large-scale child nutrition and development programme in five regions with the highest stunting burdens. Communities, public service providers and government will collaborate on nutrition projects to enhance delivery of nutrition services and to improve nutrition actions such as infant and young child feeding practices. The government of Côte d’Ivoire will contribute an additional $1 million annually, over and above the $50m IDA commitment, and in addition to investments crowded in by The Power of Nutrition from Bernard Van Leer Foundation, Jacobs Foundation and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

 

Programme Objectives

This programme aims to support Antenatal Care, Infant and Young Child Feeding, Community Management of Acute Malnutrition, governance, and Parenting and Early Childhood Development for 265,000 pregnant women and 1,100,000 children under 5. The programme aims to prevent 5,600 deaths, 32,000 cases of anaemia among pregnant women and 36,000 stunting cases.

How will success be measured?

  • Percentage of infants 0–5 months exclusively breastfed;
  • Percentage of children 6–23 months consuming a minimum acceptable diet;
  • Number of pregnant women who completed at least four ANC visits;
  • Number of caregivers who participated in parental education activities at least once in the last three months;
  • Number of households with handwashing facilities.
