The interactive map below summarizes the situation related to impact studies, implementation research, demonstration pilots, and scaling-up activities at the country level by various partners.
The map classifies countries into four categories in which category 1 indicates countries where an MMS impact study has taken place, but where (exploration of) MMS introduction is not yet happening. Categories 2 to 4 are consecutive implementation phases, with Category 2 including countries that are taking the first exploratory step to build the enabling environment, Category 3 including countries where initial implementation has started, and Category 4, the final step to scale-up delivery to the population of pregnant women with poor diets, high maternal undernutrition and high risk for babies born with low-birth-weight or being small-for-gestational-age, or stillbirths. In case an MMS impact study has taken place in countries of categories 2-4, this will be referenced on the country page.
To learn more about the implementation framework according to which the activities on the map are categorized – Exploration, Initial Implementation, and Scale-up, please visit MMS Implementation.
The map will be regularly updated based on new information. You can help us and inform us about new developments here.
