Programme effectiveness studies to reduce maternal and child malnutrition in Kenya

Project Ongoing

One Acre Fund has received support from the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) to expand their agricultural intervention model by including nutrition-sensitive and nutrition-specific interventions. To ensure that future interventions are evidence based, GroundWork and One Acre Fund are undertaking two studies to assess the nutrition impact of multiple nutrition activities: a longitudinal study of children <5 years of age and a longitudinal study of the "1,000 window" of growth and development that will enroll pregnant women and later track nutrition outcomes in their offspring. Both studies use a cluster-randomized controlled approach and are located in Western Kenya.
