Our impact in numbers
Integrating for stunting impact - academic longread
The Healthy Village approach combines WASH with food & nutrition security and care to improve child health. In our programme areas in Southern Bangladesh, stunting rates halved from 51% to 25%.
The WASH & Nutrition Nexus
When we would scale up nutrition-specific interventions, research suggests that the prevalence of childhood stunting, also known as chronic undernutrition, can be reduced by 20% (1). Even though this reduction of 20% means that 33 million children will be prevented from being stunted, it also means that in 80% of the stunted cases, an exclusive focus on nutrition only is not enough.
Shifting away from traditional input-based payments, Max Payment-by-Results (MaxPbR) links payments to our implementation partners to predefined results.
