Addressing High Mortality Rate in Pakistan

Pakistan has one of the highest rates of under-five mortality in South Asia. SRSP under the DFAT funded project “Women Economic Empowerment and market Development” (WEEMD) chose to address this issue using the community participatory approach. SRSP in three districts Charsadda, Nowshera and Peshawar has trained women activists as Nutrition Extension Workers (NEW) through conducting ToT (Training of Trainers) on Adolescent, Pregnant and Lactating Balanced Diet, Infant and Young Child Nutrition (IYCN). 
These extension workers are now working as nutrition focal persons in their respective villages and conducting awareness raising campaigns for the women and adolescent girls. So far, 3600 women attended these sessions.
