Acceleration of Vitamin A Supplementation (VAS) Through Child Health Weeks in Ogun and Osun states of Nigeria
The Food Basket Foundation International is facilitating the implementation of "Child Health Weeks" in Ogun and Osun States of Nigeria in partnership with the Micronutrient Initiative (MI). The child Health Week (CHW) supports MI's response to combating Vitamin A deficiency in Nigeria. The overall objective of the project is to reduce Vitamin A Deficiency (VAD) through large scale distribution of vitamin A capsules to children 6-59 months during the programme. The CHW is a package of preventive services designed to improve child survival through outreach and facility-based promotions in an integrated fashion. The project commenced in April 2006 and is still ongoing.

GINA project
The goal of GINA is to use integrated agriculture and nutrition interventions to improve the nutritional situation of vulnerable groups, particularly children under five years of age. GINA delivers these interventions directly to vulnerable, food-insecure populations through field-based activities that build the capacity of community members to better manage their nutritional needs. GINA best supports IEHA, an Initiative to End Hunger in Africa by focusing on improving nutritional outcomes for vulnerable populations through integrating agriculture, nutrition and economic responses. The Initiative to End Hunger in Africa (IEHA) was designed to coordinate the US government's response to the first Millennium Development Goal (MDG): to cut hunger in half by the year 2015. The project which started in 2006, sponsored by USAID was implemented by FBFI in partnership with COMPASS and BASICS III in Kano, Nassarawa and Akwa Ibom states in Nigeria, focusing on three communities a local government area within each state.
