SPRING/Bangladesh

SPRING/Bangladesh’s goal is to improve the nutritional status of pregnant and lactating women and children under two years of age by promoting and supporting the adoption of Essential Nutrition Actions and Essential Hygiene Actions (ENA/EHA) and the consumption of nutritious and diverse diets.

Working in 40 upazilas (sub-divisions) in the USAID Feed the Future zone of influence of Barisal and Khulna, SPRING/Bangladesh reaches a substantial proportion of the country’s nearly 160 million people, focusing on the most vulnerable to food insecurity and undernutrition, the ultra-poor.

SPRING's main partners in Bangladesh include the Directorate General of Health Services, Directorate General of Family Planning, National Nutrition Services, Revitalization of Community Health Care Initiatives in Bangladesh (RCHCIB), and the Department of Agriculture Extension. SPRING also works with other USAID projects in country, such as the Aquaculture for Income and Nutrition project, the USAID Horticulture Project, the USAID Livestock Project, NGO Health Service Delivery Project (NHSDP)/Surjer Hashi, Sisimpur, and the SHIKHA project.
