Technical Report

USAID Advancing Nutrition Niger conducted formative research in the Maradi and Zinder regions to better understand factors that support or inhibit the program’s desired objectives: reducing the prevalence of anemia among women of reproductive age (WRA) and adolescents and vitamin A deficiency (VAD) among children under five in the USAID Resilience in the Sahel Enhanced (RISE) II zones of intervention.

The study gathered information among communities, health providers, government and United Nations (UN) stakeholders, and USAID funded-projects to inform the design of activities to strengthen capacity among partners and government stakeholders and systems for service delivery, as well as improve key nutrition behaviors.
