Aimed at strengthening human resource capacity in nutrition at district level and below, this multi-year Government of Bangladesh-UNICEF Joint Work Plan for Maternal and Child Nutrition focused on the competencies required to deliver quality nutrition services. Approx. 30,000 frontline service providers were trained on delivering nutrition interventions in 26 districts of Bangladesh to address critical skill gaps among health care providers.
We conducted third party evaluation of these trainings, to identify gaps and challenges in the adoption of skills amongst the cadre of health and family planning service providers.
- The evaluation helped the Government of Bangladesh and UNICEF to introduce performance-based incentive programmes for training institutions and get insights into gaps and improvement areas.
