SPRING for MDG’s (Sustainable Program Incorporating Nutrition and Games)  is a seven year research programme funded by the Wellcome Trust that brings together researchers from the UK, India and Pakistan.

The aim of SPRING is to develop an innovative integrated strategy that hopes to significantly reduce child deaths and improve child growth, nutrition and development.

The key elements of SPRING are to:

  • Promote key newborn & child survival interventions
  • Enhance care giving skills, using an adaptation of the WHO/UNICEF Care for Development Package
  • Support optimal infant & young child feeding practices
  • Use a supportive counselling approach to help mothers help and play with their children.
