During the critical “window of opportunity” that occurs within the first 1,000 days of a child’s life, investments in
nutrition are crucial to ensuring proper physical growth and cognitive development. The monthly food vouchers for households headed by pregnant and lactating women (PLW) help to combat the intergenerational cycle of poverty linked to food insecurity and malnutrition by providing women with a source of income for food, promoting attendance at pre- and postnatal checkups, and empowering mothers with nutrition knowledge. The combination of nutritional supplementation and monthly food vouchers helps to meet the higher nutritional needs of people living with HIV and/or TB (PLHIV/TB) and addresses vulnerabilities that perpetuate, and are caused by, disease.
