Chronic malnutrition and anemia have been enduring problems in Nigeria requiring urgent attention and evidence-based interventions. Before introducing a Micronutrient Powder (MNP) linked with infant and young child feeding in northern Nigeria, formative research was conducted to develop a behavior change communication (BCC) strategy and to support the development of a suitable local brand that would be
acceptable to community members. On the basis of this formative process, a national plan for MNP  upplementation is being developed that aims to reach at least 11.3 million children aged 6–23 months annually by 2019. The information generated from this participatory research process has already guided the MNP distribution as part of the emergency nutrition response in three northeastern states affected by the Boko Haram insurgency, which has caused the internal displacement of 2.3 million people.
