PDH Plus Brief

Positive Deviance Hearth Plus (PDH+):  An integrated community-based nutrition programme that leverages existing expertise and local foods and agriculture to support caregivers of undernourished children to ensure sustainable recovery.

In PDH+, the prevention interventions are strengthened while the key contextualized Hearth messages are shared through not only Hearth sessions, but also through other platforms such as decentralized GMP and IYCF counselling, biofortification, kitchen gardens, micronutrient powders, animal revolving scheme/funds, nurturing care groups, and savings groups, addressing the prevention of malnutrition in children.
