GEAG works with local partners, communities and governments to find sustainable, long-term solutions to health care and better nutrition. GEAG’s health and nutrition initiatives are centred on gender. GEAG works with various agencies like Catholic Relief Services and Nutrition International on issues of maternal and child health and nutrition and provides technical support to various state governments in India on child nutrition-
-related programmes. GEAG has been providing technical assistance to the State Government of Uttar Pradesh for effective implementation of nutrition programmes in 253 blocks of 20 districts of Uttar Pradesh. GEAG undertakes community health initiatives in flood-affected areas. Sanitation, nutrition and health are closely inter-linked, and so GEAG focuses on this inter-connection too.
