Mamanieva Grandmother-Inclusive Approach Preliminary Report on Findings, Feb 2017

This preliminary report outlines the findings of the Mamanieva Project in Sierra Leone. Cross-sectional surveys at baseline and endline captured relevant data on maternal and infant and young child feeding knowledge and attitudes and the endline survey additionally captured information on maternal and child nutrition practices, birth weight and, in the intervention communities, program participation and perceived impacts of the intervention on communities. Qualitative operations research conducted at midline and endline provided information on gaps and strategies for improvement, as well as challenges and facilitators of program scale up and sustainability.
