Afghanistan is one of the most dangerous places for a child to be born. Its mortality rate for children younger than 5 years is ranked second in the world. Twenty five percent of children die before reaching their fifth birthday and more than half of all children are stunted. The Joint Programme on Nutrition and Food Security was designed to address the symptoms and underlying causes of under nutrition by supporting several government initiatives for addressing malnutrition.

This report has identified and captured best practices and lessons learned in implementing a joint program that evolved from a consultation process with governmental counterparts, IPs, community structures and beneficiaries. It addresses challenges faced and can be used by practitioners that embrace a multisectoral approach to addressing nutrition and food security issues.
