The Mama SASHA project in western Kenya

Mama SASHA (Sweetpotato Action for Security and Health in Africa) is a 5-year project (2010-2014) that seeks to explicitly integrate agriculture and nutrition interventions into antenatal health care services to maximize the potential benefits of orange-fleshed sweetpotato (OFSP) on the health status of mothers and children less than 2 years of age. OFSP is an important source of energy and beta-carotene, which is converted into Vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A deficiency contributes to significant rates of blindness, disease, and premature death in Sub-Saharan Africa.
