Within the Health and Nutrition Programme, Communication for Development (C4D) promotes changes in practices related to five key child health areas: Expanded Programme for Immunisation (EPI), newborn health, Integrated Management of Childhood Illnesses (IMCI), nutrition and maternal health. Specifically, C4D promotes exclusive breastfeeding through behaviour-focused approaches and equips communities with skills to apply appropriate infant and young child feeding practises. C4D also aims to educate communities to utilize ante-natal care services and increase demand for institutional and skilled delivery.
