The Affordable Nutritious Foods for Women (ANF4W) project aims to improve the intake of micronutrients by women of reproductive age (WRA, 15–49 years of age), with a view to the critical window of opportunity represented by the first 1,000 days of a child’s life. It uses market-based approaches, complemented by nutrition awareness activities, to create and promote a sustainable supply of nutritious foods and food products. The project is currently being implemented in four countries – Bangladesh, Ghana, Kenya and Tanzania – and its approaches include agronomic biofortification and staple and supplementary food fortification. ANF4W is co-funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. It is implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), within the framework of development partnerships with the private sector (develoPPP.de). The current project phase runs from July 2013 to May 2017.
