Low adherence to recommended health and nutrition strategies during the critical 1000 day-window of opportunity is multifactorial but low quality communication is key limitation. Innovative strategies to improve interpersonal communication can reduce the burden and the fatigue of community health workers and may result in a greater change. The findings of this project will support governments and other stakeholders in their delivery of high impact nutrition and health practices.
