Suchana: Securing Access to Government Social Protection

Ending the cycle of undernutrition in Bangladesh is a multisectoral nutrition program that aims to achieve a significant reduction in stunting among children under two years of age in Sylhet and Moulvibazar districts of Bangladesh. The program adopts an integrated approach to nutrition specific and nutrition-sensitive interventions to prevent chronic malnutrition within the critical 1,000 days from conception until a child reaches its second birthday.

To ensure nutritionally vulnerable households and individuals are better able to absorb shocks (climatic, health and economic), a key component of the program focuses on increasing access among eligible households to existing government social protection schemes.
