mNutrition- Business models for mobile phone based delivery of nutrition services in Africa and South Asia

UK aid from the British people

Project Data Last Updated: 26/04/2019

IATI Identifier: GB-1-203638

Description

The impact of mNutrition will be improved livelihoods, food security and nutrition of 3 million poor people, especially women, in 14 countries in Africa and Asia. This will result from the greater involvement of mobile phone companies in providing improved access to mobile-phone based health, nutrition and agricultural-based information services to poor farmers, including women and adolescent girls, who are often unable to access conventional extension systems. In this way, poor farmers will be supported in improving their food production, income and nutrition practices within their families. This contributes towards our MDGs by reducing rural poverty, hunger and child mortality and improving maternal health in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa by 2017.
