Together with the World Food Programme, we supported rice fortification, including:
- Building the capacity of government functionaries and rice blending mills
- Strengthening the fortified rice kernels supply chain
- Providing technical support to the blending units for the production, monitoring, and quality control of fortified rice
- Promoting awareness of the benefits of fortified rice among the beneficiaries of government social protection programs
The project sought to improve the nutrition and health status of pregnant and lactating women and newborns through iron-folic acid supplementation in pregnancy as part of improved quality of antenatal care.
