Alive & Thrive (A&T) is an initiative to save lives, prevent illness, and ensure healthy growth and development of infants and young children.
Good nutrition in the first 1,000 days, from conception to two years of age, is critical to enable all children to lead healthier and more productive lives.
A&T is scaling up improved infant and young child feeding (IYCF) and maternal nutrition through large-scale programs in several countries in Africa and Asia through strategic technical support and the dissemination of innovations, tools, and lessons worldwide.
Alive & Thrive Ethiopia 3.0 is a five-year investment funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) to strengthen the institutional and human capacities required to achieve the Government of Ethiopia’s (GOE) ambitions for nutrition.
Since 2009, A&T is working in Ethiopia within the context of the National Nutrition Program (NNP) and the National Nutrition-Sensitive Agriculture Strategy (NNSAS) to promote maternal, adolescent, infant and young child nutrition (MAIYCN) across multiple sectors at the federal, regional, woreda, and community levels.
The A&T Ethiopia 3.0 investment will build upon successes and lessons learned from previous IYCF efforts to significantly improve MAIYCN practices.
In this new grant, A&T will provide greater analytical, technical, and systems-building support to bolster the capacity of federal and regional authorities to develop, deliver, monitor, and evaluate quality MAIYCN services.
A&T Ethiopia 3.0 will work in partnership with the GOE and others to achieve the following three outcomes:
