Global Maternal Nutrition Guidelines project

Duration: 2014-2016

Donor: Abbott Nutrition

Background:  While there is global consensus on the need for women to adopt optimal nutrition practices when planning a pregnancy, during a pregnancy and in the post-partum period, a comprehensive resource setting out evidence-based guidance on maternal nutrition remains unavailable to key healthcare professionals. 

Project aims:

To disseminate evidence-based guidelines on maternal nutrition, from pre-conception to the post-partum period, in collaboration with obstetricians and gynecologists and other key healthcare professionals and workers.
