Initiative for Hygiene, Sanitation and Nutrition (IHSAN)

The IHSAN project improves the nutritional status of women of reproductive age and children younger than 5 years of age, focusing on the children’s first 1,000 days (conception to 24 months of age). The expected outcomes of IHSAN are to decrease stunting by at least 5 percent over five years, and to reduce anemia among women of reproductive age by at least 10 percent. The objectives are: 1) increasing the government’s capacity to institutionalize nutrition programs, 2) advancing the adoption of optimal nutrition and hygiene behaviors at community and household levels, and 3) improving the availability of nutrition, hygiene, and sanitation services.
