Improving the nutrition of vulnerable children and families in Laos

Nutrition has improved in Lao PDR over the past years, but there is still room for improvement.

Based in Attapeu, Saravane and Savannakhet provinces, and supported by the European Union and the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the Accelerating Healthy Agriculture and Nutrition Project (AHAN) program's objective is to improve the nutrition of Lao rural households. 

Through a holistic approach including agriculture, health, water sanitation and hygiene, gender and disability inclusion components, and with the help of the Government of Lao PDR, AHAN tackles the roots of malnutrition, focusing on the most vulnerable children and their family.
