Women’s Voices from Democratic Republic of the Congo

3 October 2022 – Today, the 5th short film in the Women’s Voices series was released. This film, from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, shows the challenges faced by Makenge Thethe, during the ninth month of her pregnancy in getting nutrient-rich food and health services for a healthy pregnancy. In her own voice, she talks about how multiple micronutrient supplementation (MMS) helped improve her health during pregnancy and deliver a strong baby girl.


These films are an important component of the Consortium’s advocacy efforts towards improving maternal nutrition and accelerating the adoption of multiple micronutrient supplements (MMS) during pregnancy.
