Nutrition at CARE
Despite global gains, malnutrition in the developing world remains high and has even
increased in southern Asia and sub-Saharan Africa
(35% and 27% of the population, respectively). Malnutrition
affects every stage of the lifecycle
and has severe generational consequences. Malnourished mothers are more likely to die in childbirth and have low birth weight babies who, in turn, face higher mortality rates and increased risk of disease.
in reduced mental capacity, lower retention in school and reduced lifetime earnings.
’s Nutrition team envisions a world where malnutrition has been substantially reduced and disparities in hunger have been eliminated. This vision is grounded in our core belief that all children have a right to the best possible start in life.
We seek to bring us closer to our vision by using an integrated approach to maternal and child nutrition. Through our program Nutrition at the Center we are working with CARE country offices in Bangladesh, Benin, Ethiopia and Zambia to develop, document and disseminate highly effective and efficient integrated approaches that substantially improve nutritional outcomes for mothers and children in resource poor areas.
Our Programmatic Goal
To significantly improve nutrition outcomes for mothers and children in resource poor areas by
Decreasing stunting in young children
Decreasing maternal and child anemia
