Increase exclusive breastfeeding from 12% to 50%, maintain overweight rate in children under 5%, reduce anemia in children from 75% to 56% and in women from 54% to 40.5%

Reported progress

According to the latest MICS survey (2016), exclusive breastfeeding has increased from 12% to 23.5%. A $10 million national breastfeeding multisectoral plan was adopted. In terms of overweight, the prevalence remains under 5%. There is also a decline in anemia in children, however, the prevalence of anemia among women of childbearing age is increasing.

Basis of assessment

Progress has been made in breastfeeding, but is unlikely to meet the target by 2020; anemia among women is increasing, and it is unclear whether anemia has declined sufficiently among children. Only the target for overweight among children is clearly on course.

Increase rates of exclusive breastfeeding in the first 6 months from 23% to 72% by 2025.

Reported progress

Based on the average annual increase in exclusive breastfeeding required to meet the target, progress between 2013 and 2016 has been insufficient.
