Suchana is a multi-sectoral nutrition programme whose main objective is to end the cycle of undernutrition in Bangladesh. One of the key goals of this programme is to reduce stunting (additional 6% in 3 years) amongst children under two years of age in Sylhet and Moulovibazar districts under Sylhet division in Bangladesh. The programme adopts an integrated approach combining nutrition specific and nutrition sensitive interventions to prevent chronic malnutrition within the critical 1,000 days from conception until a child reaches its second birthday.
dRi conducted the annual survey for Suchana in 2018 to understand the overall annual nutritional and food security situation among the Suchana Beneficiary Households (BHHs) in line with the selected indicators in the Suchana logical framework as well as other available national and international measurements (BDHS, HIFAS, MICS, FSNSP, etc.) which allowed to demonstrate a comparative situation on health, nutrition and food security in Bangladesh.
Another objective of the project was to generate valuable evidence relating different program activities (e.g. nutritional practices, food security, knowledge/practices relating the MCHN among caregivers, fathers, engagement with GO, NGO and other stakeholders, etc.) in line with the project’s selected key indicators.Theme: Food Security and Nutrition
