from Core Group web site



The Nutrition Program Design Assistant is a tool to help organizations design the nutrition component of their community-based maternal and child health, food security, or other development program.

The tool focuses on prevention and also provides guidance on recuperative approaches that are needed when there is a high prevalence of acute malnutrition.

The tool has two components:

(1) a reference guide for understanding the nutrition situation and identifying and selecting program approaches, and

(2) a workbook to record information, decisions, and decision-making rationale.

The workbook is available as a pdf or Word file, and includes a separate Excel file with adaptable templates to use as needed for data collection and developing a Logical Framework.
