SPRING/Ghana

SPRING/Ghana aimed to reduce stunting by 20 percent in two regions—Northern Region and Upper East Region. Working in 15 districts within these two regions, SPRING/Ghana’s activities included anemia reduction, infant and young child nutrition; water, sanitation, and hygiene; aflatoxin reduction; community video; and support to the LEAP 1000 cash transfers.

SPRING/Ghana defined its activities through the 1,000 Day Household approach, which targeted households with pregnant women and children 2 years of age and younger. This approach synthesized each intervention area into a holistic approach designed to support the ability of the1,000 day household to care for and support the 1,000 day child.

SPRING’s main partners in Ghana included Ghana Health Services, the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT, the Ghana LEAP Project, UNICEF, and RING.
