This project has a general objective Contributing to the improvement of the nutritional status of pregnant and nursing women and children under the age of 5 in the regions of Cascades and Center Ouest in Burkina Faso, in line with national priorities in the fight against malnutrition and with the thematic strategies of interventions in progress in the country, in relation to the Sustainable Development Goal number 2. Regarding the specific objective, the project proposes to Reduce the indices of malnutrition among pregnant and nursing women and children under the age of 5 in the Cascades and Center regions Ouest, with the active participation of communities, in line with the National Multisectoral Nutrition Policy of Burkina Faso. The project will make use of the long-time experience and consolidated expertise of the proposed entities in the country. The project aims to develop integrated actions which are replicable on a large scale, in line with the expectations and needs of local authorities and in synergy with other existing actions in the proposed topics. Thus, this project is structured on three results: 1)The package of services for the prevention of malnutrition and for the adoption of correct feeding and nutrition practices, aimed at pregnant and nursing women and children under the age of 2, are applied at the community level in coordination with the health centers of reference. The project intervenes in these health centers to develop packages for the services of ANJE (French acronym for the nutrition of children and infants) and to spread correct information, by adopting approaches and measures to strengthen the role of community actors and the different target groups. Thus, the project strengthens the actions of community-based health agents (ASBC) and of the women concerned, and of health personnel working in the Centers of Health and Social Promotion (CSPS). 2) The package of care services for children under the age of 5 in a state of acute malnutrition are applied at community level in coordination with the health centers of reference. The project intends to develop integrated care services on acute malnutrition (PCIMA) and community care (PCIMA), by adopting the Surge approach for health personnel, and the mother brachial perimeter (PM) approach for community actors. The project will also strengthen the provision of equipment for anthropometric measurements in CSPS and supply of nutritional supplements for children in acute malnutrition conditions. 3) The targeted families produce and consume foods that promote good complementary nutrition for pregnant and nursing women and children between 6 and 59 months old. Through this result we intend to improve the food security of the targeted population by developing sustainable and diversified family productions. These productions will be mainly focused on self-consumption and the creation of surpluses for the market, by mobilizing local communities and their expertise, through family gardens, small-scale breeding of domestic animals and fish farming. The project is directed towards the following groups of direct beneficiaries: -For R1 and R2 the project will operate in 5 Health Districts (DS): 2 in the Region of Cascades (Ca) and 3 in the Center-Ouest (CO) Region. The project covers 130 CSPS (55 in Ca and 75 in CO), in a territory of 24 Municipalities (9 in Ca and 15 in CO) and 364 villages (167 in Ca and 197 in CO) and 9 suburbans sectors (Co), for the following targets: 146.748 Pregnant and Nursing Women (61.687 Pregnant Women, of which 27.418 in Ca and 34.269 in CO; 85.060 Nursing Women, of which 33.922 in Ca and 51.138 in CO) and 85.060 infants 0-23 months old (of which 33.922 in Ca and 51.138 in CO); 100.362 children 24-59 months old (of which 43.267 in Ca and 57.095 in CO). -For R3 the project will operate in 24 municipalities (15 in CO and 9 in Ca) read more close
