Home fortification study in Zambia - pilot (2015)

A 12-month study into home fortification in northern Zambia


In order to develop an evidence-based policy for implementing MNP integrated in an IYCF programme at scale in Zambia, the Zambian Ministry of Health with the support of UNICEF ran a 12-month MNP Home Fortification pilot in the Northern Province of Zambia which was completed in November 2014. The pilot study evaluated the use of MNP in combination with the promotion of adequate infant and young child feeding (IYCF) practices and early childhood development (ECD).
