This brief intends to share the evidence on the links between nutrition-specific interventions and child/maternal mortality, laying the foundation for the larger series of programmatic guidance briefs to follow. These briefs will provide 1) case examples and additional details related to the implementation of successful nutrition activities and programs, 2) evidence on non-mortality outcomes such as impaired cognitive development in children, and 3) in-depth analysis of linkages with other nutrition-sensitive technical areas such as agriculture, family planning and WASH.
