During the first 1,000 days of life, from pregnancy to a child’s second birthday, children are most vulnerable to the effects of undernutrition and disease. Suchana aims to reduce undernutrition and stunting in children in Bangladesh, by targeting children under two and women of reproductive age (15-45 years) from 250,000 poor households in Sylhet and Moulvibazar. The project has an integrated approach, adopting a range of market-based, gender-sensitive and nutrition-sensitive activities. Activities to improve nutrition include capacity building, teaching households to produce nutritious food such as fish, chickens and vegetables, and linking households with markets.
