In the process of initiation, ina pilot home fortification programme with micronutrient powders was launched in the Talas province, which presented some of the worst nutrition indicators and highest stunting prevalence in the country. A key aspect of the programme was the distribution of the sachets through the health care system with community-based counseling and follow up if problems arose.
The program is currently implemented at national scale reaching approximately half a million children through 1, primary health care units.

Ensuring supplements are distributed and used across the seven Indigenous communities Implementing nutrition education programs for family and community Collecting comprehensive information for evaluation about the effect of the project on childhood anaemia and nutrition in enrolled communities and the feasibility of implementing the program more broadly Providing on-going training and employment to Indigenous community based workers CBW Number of participants A total of Indigenous babies aged months from seven communities in the Northern Territory, North Queens-land and East Kimberley were enrolled into the project.

A very strong and innovative communication strategy is also employed to improve infant feeding practices in general. The business model is being tested for sustainability. For children months in urban project areas, trained franchisees will start promoting and sale of the product in early March, following the urban aliemntate.
In addition to explaining what Zazatomady is and what benefits it has, the spots discuss exclusive and continued breastfeeding, and the importance of food diversity for young children.
The launches in Fenerive Est and Vavateny were the result of intensive advocacy work with local authorities. Project partners from the different entities at central level traveled repeatedly to the Analanjirofo region and the districts to discuss the project with health and administrative authorities, and to ensure their commitment and interest. As a result, both launches were attended by high level regional and district authorities who reiterated their enthusiasm for the project in a series of eloquent speeches.
When the official delegation arrived at the site of the launch in Fenerive Est, hundreds of people welcomed them in a joyous event that involved music, songs from different communes, dances by the CHWs and official speeches.
Speeches were followed by a visit to various stands that showed newly disseminated IEC materials for CHWs to counsel mothers with infants and young children on nutrition, posters that describe the key research findings from the qualitative and the quantitative studies that were conducted in late The stands also included a table with several trays of local food and a tray of Zazatomady, which CHWs used to demonstrate on-the-spot to mothers with children months how the product is meant to be used.
Radio, TV and print media journalists from Antananarivo and the region attended the launch and a press release was provided for coverage in national and regional newspapers.
During his speech he reiterated the importance of the project: Messages from the National Nutrition Office and the Ministry of Health focused on the anticipated health impact the product would have on micronutrient deficiencies in the districts and on their commitment to making the pilot a success.
He further commented on the successful social mobilisation aspects of the launch, and remarked how well the trained CHWs seemed to have mastered the newly taught messages. CHWs who participated in the launches seemed proud to serve their communities and very pleased with the new IEC tools, the product, and the supervision they will be receiving from the Regional Nutrition Office and the district health facility staff.
Yet, the success of the project is in the hands of the communities and though results from the acceptability study showed very positive interest and motivation, it is ultimately the mothers of Fenerive Est and Vavateny who need to embrace Zazatomady. Launches were held at participating clinics where edu-tainment activities through mobile video unit MVU sessions were organized to ensure mothers understand where the product is available.
During these sessions, IEC materials were distributed, radio spots were broadcasted and humorous animations were conducted by Mr. Two community health NGOs commented a few days after the Fianarantsoa launch: During the speeches, health authorities expressed their engagement to ensure successful implementation of the pilot and their strong willingness to rapidly take the project to scale.
The head of a Fianarantsoa- based NGO said: Project partners will be closely monitoring project activities in rural and urban sites, and sharing lessons learnt in the early stages, to reinforce advocacy for rapid scale up in other districts and regions.
Towards the end of the pilot the quantitative and qualitative research studies will be repeated to measure any changes in knowledge, attitude and practice in the rural communities that were part of the pilot.
