Food security and nutrition for children and Salvadoran households (SANNHOS)

Chronic malnutrition in infants in El Salvador

National level statistics in El Salvador show that chronic child malnutrition is prevalent and that it begins with limited healthy eating practices for pregnant women and less exclusive breastfeeding.

The programme

The SDG Fund programme takes a multi-sectorial and multidimensional approach, with inclusion and participation of actors linked to food security and nutrition at different stages of the project cycle. It supports the Government’s plan, “El Salvador Ahead.”

The approach

The programme's objectives will be achieved by:

  • Strengthening public policy and support for the joint construction of initiatives.
  • Improving local production and import substitution, both of raw materials and finished products.
  • Increasing communities’ resilience to adapt to climate change, reducing vulnerabilities to food production.
  • Expanding local nutrition information systems.
