Reach and scope of nutrition service delivery to women and children have both widened dramatically during the last four years. For instance, the number of SAM sites has increased from 900 to almost 1400 in 2019, the introduction of weekly iron folic acid supplementation for school going girls has scaled up to almost 10,000 schools, the introduction of the community-based nutrition program and expansion of the program to 3200 health posts in seven provinces, the nationwide implementation of Vit A supplementation for almost 8 million children under five years old, and the increased availability of female nutrition counsellors in all 34 provinces to provide growth monitoring and counselling services in almost 1300 health facilities.
