Highlights

A review of the functioning and impact of Mother Support Groups (MSGs) has been commissioned by UNICEF Country Office, Sri Lanka.

UNICEF, as part of the support under its Maternal and Child Health and Nutrition Sector, has included the facilitation of MSGs through the Health Sector in the Northern and Eastern Provinces, over the past few years. The review covers MSGs in 5 Medical Officers of Health Divisions (MOH) each in Trincomalee and Batticaloa Districts of the East and 1 MOH each in Vavuniya and Mullaitivu. Setting up MSGs was one of the components of a range of activities supported under health and nutrition in these districts. Resources were provided through an EU partnership. Activities related to setting up, strengthening and supervising these MSGs were implemented at field level by 2 NGOs – 3CD in Trincomalee and SEDO in Batticaloa.
