This is one of a series of case studies that aim to provide internal learning for UNICEF on the linkages between social protection and maternal and child nutrition programming. This case study explores how Kenya’s Nutrition Improvements through Cash and Health Education (NICHE) programme targets vulnerable households with cash, nutrition counselling and child protection services to address multiple determinants of child undernutrition and vulnerability.
