Nourish the Body, Nourish the Bond: Integrating early care and nutrition in emergencies

Go Baby Go! and Community-Based Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM) – An integrated model from World Vision International Go Baby Go! is a parenting programme focused on psychosocial stimulation and care for children aged 0-3. Delivered through a combination of group sessions and home visits, the model can be implemented either as a standalone programme or as part of other delivery platforms, such as health and nutrition. A recent study in South Darfur found that integrating Go Baby Go with an existing community nutrition platform for children with moderate acute malnutrition led to significant differences in treatment outcomes. Children receiving the combined nutrition and Go Baby Go! intervention saw an increased recovery rate of 30% and reduced length-of-stay for MAM treatment of 13%, compared to the control group receiving nutrition alone (McGrath et al. 2022)
