SUAAHARA II GOOD NUTRITION PROGRAM ANNUAL SURVEY YEAR ONE (2017)

Publication Date: 04/04/2018

The Government of Nepal (GoN) is currently rolling out the second phase of a national Multi-Sectoral Nutrition Program (MSNP), with the support of external development partners. Suaahara II is a USAID-funded multisectoral nutrition program, aligned with Nepal’s MSNP, being implemented in 42 of Nepal’s 77 districts from 2016 to 2021. Suaahara II aims to reduce the prevalence of stunting, wasting and underweight among children under 5 years of age and to reduce the prevalence of anemia among WRA and children 6-59 months of age. CARE is sub-grantee to Helen Keller International on this project.
Annual surveys are a key component of Suaahara II’s monitoring system. The primary purpose is to monitor progress over time related to key Suaahara II inputs, outputs, outcomes and impacts in intervention areas. The first SII annual monitoring survey was conducted between June to September 2017 among a representative sample of households with a child under five years, by New Era, a local survey firm.
