The aim is to enhance the capacity of the Government of Sindh to efficiently implement its multisectoral nutrition policy while also providing direct assistance to significantly and rapidly reduce malnutrition in rural Sindh.
Government of Sindh (GoS) through the Planning and Development Department (PDD) is implementing a six-year, from 2016 to 2021, multi-sectoral Sindh Accelerated Action Plan for Reduction of Stunting and Malnutrition (AAP), with the objective of reducing stunting rate from the existing 48 percent to 40 percent by 2021. The European Union (EU), under the EU Commission Action Plan on Nutrition 2014, is supporting GoS in addressing the issue of malnutrition. Therefore, EU Brussels Office has approved the Programme for Improved Nutrition in Sindh (PINS) to be implemented in ten districts of Sindh. PINS will build upon the social mobilisation approach to community driven development (CDD) of RSPN and RSPs under the EU supported Sindh Union Council and Community Economic Strengthening Support (SUCCESS) Programmeand GoS supported Union Council Based Poverty Reduction Programme (UCBPRP).
