Alive & Thrive (A&T) conducted an impact evaluation to test an integrated package of interventions to improve breastfeeding practices in the Boucle du Mouhoun region from 2015 to 2017. To document the results of its interventions in the said region, the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), along with Centre Muraz and AFRICSanté, conducted a joint external evaluation in 37 municipalities (communes) from 2015 to 2017. The communes were randomized to serve as control areas (19 communes) or intervention areas (18 communes), of the communes which received two key interventions.
