Nutrition for Growth (N4G) commitment
1. Reduce stunting prevalence from 23% to 18% by 2015.
2. Increase exclusive breastfeeding from 56% to 65% by 2015.
1. The prevalence of stunting reduced from 23% in 2013 to 17.5% in 2019/2020. Nonetheless, there is a big regional variation, ranging from 10.1% to 25.2% (source: Demographic and Health Survey 2019/2020).
2. The proportion of children exclusively breastfed stands at 53.6%. The exclusive breastfeeding target has not yet been reached, but a lot of improvements are taking place to promote optimal infant and young child feeding.
