USAID Advancing Nutrition, or USAIDдин "Мыкты Азыктануу" долбоору, worked in the Kyrgyz Republic from October 2019 to October 2023, with a focus on Batken, Issyk-Kul, and Jalal-Abad Oblasts. We worked to improve the nutritional status of women of reproductive age (ages 15-49) and children under 5, focusing on the 1,000-day window of opportunity between pregnancy and a child's second birthday. Learn how we worked closely with partners in national and local governments, village health committees, health centers in oblasts and districts, as well as other nutrition stakeholders, to improve nutrition-related behaviors through enhanced social behavior change at individual, household, and population levels and improved the quality of nutrition services within the health system.
