ENRICH - a 1000 Day Journey

Enhancing Nutrition Services to Improve Maternal and Child Health in Africa and Asia (ENRICH) is a multi-year, multi-country programme funded by Global Affairs Canada that aims to improve the health and nutrition status of mothers, newborns and children in select regions of Bangladesh, Kenya, Myanmar, Pakistan and Tanzania. ENRICH (also known as the 1000 Day Journey) is implemented by World Vision Canada, Harvest Plus and Nutrition International. 

The goal of ENRICH is to contribute to reduction of maternal and child mortality in Bangladesh, Kenya, Myanmar, Pakistan and Tanzania by addressing issues critical to the health of mothers, newborns and young children. The program seeks to achieve this goal through strengthening of health systems with an emphasis on community systems, improving nutrition of pregnant women, infants and young children during the first 1,000 days from conception to 24 months of age, and ensuring accountability of results at all levels. ENRICH takes a comprehensive approach to improve delivery of essential nutrition services: increasing production, and consumption of nutritious foods and micronutrient supplements by women of childbearing age, pregnant women, children under five; and strengthening governance, policy and public engagement of Maternal, Newborn, Child Health (MNCH) in Canada and target countries.
