This brief presents information on why the nutrition of adolescent girls and mothers is important, the causes of malnutrition, and the scope of the problem. It also provides an overview of key, nutrition-specific interventions that address the immediate causes of malnutrition in adolescent girls and mothers. To mitigate the underlying and systemic causes of malnutrition, the brief suggests nutrition-sensitive interventions using a multi-sectoral approach.
