the feasibility of integrating a comprehensive package of maternal nutrition interventions into the maternal, neonatal,and child health (MNCH) programs of BRAC, a Bangladesh-based non-governmental organization that has partnered with A&T since 2009. The program will aim to increase maternal dietary diversity and intake of energy, protein, iron, folic acid, and calcium in pregnant women in four districts: Kurigram, Lalmonirhat, Mymensingh, and Rangpur.
