The Ministry of Health and the World Food Programme have today released an assessment report on adolescent nutrition in Kenya.
The report prepared in collaboration with Unilever and the Ministry of Health has proposed best practice solutions to help guide the country’s nutrition sector to design adolescent-focused evidence-based interventions.
The report highlights the risks faced by girls as pertaining to their nutrition, health and education status with adolescent girls being particularly nutritionally vulnerable due to a number of factors: adolescent pregnancy, menstruation, traditionally lower education attainment, and higher level of physical demands.
