Innovation Description

This project aims to fill a major policy gap in Pakistan with capture and follow up of newborn and young infants enrolled nutrition trials to understand longer term impacts on growth, developmental outcomes and school performance, in order to advocate for more early nutrition interventions for at risk children.
How does your innovation work?
Pakistan is one of 10 countries with the highest number of undernourished mothers, and children with high rates of fetalĀ under-nutritionĀ and low birth weight. Many children do not meet their developmental potential by age 5. This early adversity has serious repercussions for subsequent growth, cognitive development, school readiness and educational achievement and could potentially impact economic growth. Early nutrition intervention may be able to improve long-term human capital.
