Nutrition: 
Good maternal and childhood nutrition is designed to contribute to the reduction of under-five morbidity and mortality. Nutritional services will focus on promotion of early and exclusive breastfeeding, infant and young child feeding, promotion of local salt iodation, provision and distribution of micro-nutrients to both pregnant women and children, and periodic provision of de-worming treatment. Community identification and management of acute malnutrition will be strengthened. Where appropriate, communities will be sensitised to identify and refer severe cases of malnutrition for proper management at the health facilities.
