cRCT to Improve Maternal Nutrition Service Delivery During ANC

Malnutrition among women of reproductive age is a significant public health problem in Bangladesh, with major implications for a woman's own health and that of her newborn child. The principal drivers for maternal malnutrition in Bangladesh are poor-quality diets, care seeking practices and access to health care. An ideal contact point for pregnant women are antenatal care visits (ANC). However, the provision of maternal nutrition services through government systems is inadequate with just 29% of pregnant women attending all 4 ANC visits and 18% of women consuming at least 100 IFA tablets.
