Building on experiences and lessons learned from its first five years in Ethiopia, Alive & Thrive Phase II (2014-2017) provided support to roll out elements of the government’s multi-sectoral National Nutrition Program (NNP) aimed at improving breastfeeding and complementary feeding practices
From 2010-2014, Alive & Thrive worked in Bangladesh, Ethiopia, and Viet Nam to reduce undernutrition and death caused by sub-optimal infant and young child feeding (IYCF) practices.

Provides checklists and guidelines for conducting, reporting on, and developing action plans as follow up to supportive visits by supervisors to observe nutrition services and counseling at multiple levels (zonal, health center, health post, and community).
