The report first provides an overview of the extent, causes and consequences of undernutrition. The report considers data on anthropometric status of women and children, the extent of micronutrient deficiencies and indicators of nutrition behaviour in Pakistan. This is followed by an overview of guiding principles of the two DFID nutrition strategy papers (2010, 2011), and how the strategies can be implemented in Pakistan. The report considers how DFID Pakistan programmes could contribute directly and indirectly to improving the nutritional status of the population.
