Background and Purpose

  • UNICEF Uganda Country Programme Document (CPD 2021-2025) identified stunting in its priority areas of focus, aimed at reducing child deprivation and supporting the National Development Plan (NDP III) which set to reduce stunting from 29% to 19%.

Stunting, which is the chronic form of malnutrition, is the impaired growth and development that children experience from poor nutrition, repeated infection, and inadequate psychosocial stimulation.
