With leadership from the Prime Minister of Bangladesh, H.E. Sheikh Hasina and the Government of Bangladesh, people are coming together to support actions to improve nutrition, especially for women and children. The government has renewed its resolve to deliver nutrition-specific interventions at the community level, through a comprehensive nutrition package including support for breastfeeding and complementary feeding, dietary diversification, food supplementation and fortification as well as management of severe malnutrition.
Efforts are being made to coordinate policies that set out shared nutrition-related objectives across sectors – from expanded health service delivery, to improving access to nutritious foods through the agriculture sector. These actions are being supported by strong civil society alliances and coordination across government, United Nations agencies, business, donors and the technical and research institutions.
