Ehsaas Nashonuma

The Ehsaas Nashonuma is a health and nutrition conditional cash transfer programme which aims to address stunting in children under 23 months of age. Pakistan’s high rates of 40.2% stunting, 28.9% underweight and 17.7% wasting are indicative of an on-going crisis among children. Stunting negatively impacts brain function, organ development, and immune system, ultimately limiting future productivity. Prime Minister Imran Khan launched this programme on August 13, 2020 in 14 districts of the country in the first phase which include Rajanpur, Khanewal, Khyber, Upper Dir, Kalat, Lasbela, Bagh, Hattian Bala, Kharmang, Diamer, Astore, Badin, Dadu and Islamabad selected on the basis of high stunting rate and in consultation with the provincial health departments. Under the programme, 50 Ehsaas Nashunama Marakiz/Centers have been established at Tehsil level health facilities to provide all Nashonuma services under one roof. Ehsaas Nashonuma is fully funded by the government of Pakistan. World Food Programme has been hired as an implementing partner to carry out all the activities of the programme.
