Are there any documents or reference materials for prevention and management of stunting which can be used in Kenya?

Dear Alando,
Stunting is caused by Chronic malnutrition that can only be prevented by appropriate Maternal, infant and young feeding practices. We already have guidelines and other communication materials and interventions in Kenya to address this. We have policies, strategies and guidelines for Maternal Infant and Young child Nutrition. We have the baby friendly community initiative implementation guidelines. Kindly contact the Health Ministry, Nutrition and Dietetics Unit and at your county Health Department this information is available. Additionally visit the Kenyan Nutrition website www.nutritionhealth.or.ke
