Rates of malnutrition among women and children in Bangladesh are among the highest in the world. Malnutrition is one of the leading causes of mortality and morbidity in many countries. Considering the serious effect of malnutrition, improved nutritional outcomes are intimately tied to Millennium Development Goals in improving maternal health, reducing child mortality and eradicating extreme poverty and hunger. CARE Bangladesh, in collaboration with Government of Bangladesh (GoB) implemented a Nutrition at the Center (N@C) program in Bangladesh with two-fold strategies that include integrating nutrition in existing community health system and promotion of multisectoral approaches to improve nutrition.

Pathways- Global Baseline Report

CARE’s Pathways program focuses on improving poor women farmers’ productivity by empowering them to more fully engage in equitable agriculture systems. The program is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and implemented in Bangladesh, Ghana, India, Malawi, Mali, and Tanzania. Aligned with other CARE initiatives, such as CARE Australia’s WE-RISE program, Pathways is designed to overcome the constraints to women’s productive and equitable engagement in agriculture. Utilizing a strong gender focus, the program’s Theory of Change posits that marginalized, poor women farmers will be more productive, and their families more food secure when:
 women have increased capacity (skills, knowledge, resources), capabilities (confidence, bargaining power, collective voice), and support
 local governance and institutions have/implement gender-sensitive policies and programming that are responsive to the rights and needs of poor women farmers
 agricultural service, value chain, and market environments of relevance to women are more competitive, gender-inclusive, and environmentally sustainable. [104 pages] Read More...
