Accelerated Action Plan

The Government of Sindh (GoS) recently adopted an Accelerated Action Plan for Reduction of Stunting and Malnutrition (AAP). The AAP has the ambitious goals of reducing stunting from 48% to 30% by 2021 and to 15% by 2026 by increasing and expanding coverage of multi-sectoral interventions proven to reduce stunting in the first five years of life. It includes objectives and expected outcomes related to addressing the underlying causes (by sector) of stunting: health, population, sanitation and hygiene, agriculture (including livestock and fisheries), social protection, education, and behavioral change communication.

The Project Development Objective (PDO) is to contribute to the reduction of the stunting rate among children under 5 years of age by targeting the most affected 24 districts in the Province of Sindh.

SAFWCO is the main lead in the project while IRM is developing Information communication material and monitoring the project.
