Presentation: Maternal nutrition outcomes in an integrated agriculture, health and nutrition program in western Kenya

Mama SASHA was a 5 year integrated program that sought to answer the question “can linking vitamin A rich sweet potato to existing health services improve maternal and child nutrition? The project was implemented in eight facilities which were purposively drawn from the larger pool of health facilities in Busia and Bungoma counties and randomly allocated to either control or facility. Frederick Grant presented the findings of the evaluation of this project which looked at population level on child nutrition, individual level impacts on maternal and child nutrition, and cost-effectiveness of the intervention.
