Using BRAC’s community health volunteer network to scale up sale of multiple micronutrient powders in Bangladesh

The results presented in this report are from the quantitative component of a mixed-methods process evaluation carried out on BRAC’s Pushtikona program in June-July 2012. GAIN supports the manufacturing of multinutrient powders (MNPs) called Pushtikona targeted at infants aged 6 to 24 months. The overall objective of the evaluation was to identify strengths and weaknesses in program implementation, processes and uptake, which could ultimately affect program outcomes. 

A total of 800 interviews were conducted (462 households randomly sampled and 338 “purchaser” households purposively sampled) among households that had a child 6-23 months. Interviews were carried out with household members and BRAC female health workers. Data presented here are from ten upazilas (five from A&T intensive areas and five from A&T non-intensive areas).

The findings from the study offer key insights about the Pushtikona program and highlight some implications along with key areas for further research.
