Community Action for Health and Nutrition
This component is designed to empower communities to oversee, manage, and improve Health, Nutrition, and Population (HNP) services and their utilization. A Result Based Financing incentive strategy is used whereby funding is provided to communities on the basis of progress on defined indicators of improved health and nutrition-related services and practices. In turn, communities use the incentives for activities and investments that are important to them and have potential impacts on health and nutrition. The component has a major focus on knowledge and skill-building of Village Health Committees and other stakeholders at the community level, including women’s groups and Village Councils. Village Health Committees are supported by NHP in identifying existing gaps, determining the most suitable approaches to address these gaps, developing action plans, and operationalizing those plans.
