An unique component of the project is to ‘coordinate and align’ Zambian ministerial sector activities at the district and community levels to address the intertwined and multisectoral causes of child stunting. The coordination across sectors is thought to improve the impact and sustainability of the project as well as to encourage replication, thereby better addressing malnutrition.
