What is a Ehsaas Nashonuma Program


This is a conditional health and nutrition financial assistance program of the Government of Pakistan to overcome the problem of stunting in children under 23 months of age. The Ehsaas Nashonuma Program aims to provide the following facilities to control the problem of stunting in children under 23 months of age. The total budget of this program is about Rs. 8.52 billion. All funds for this program are provided entirely by the Government of Pakistan.

Under the first phase, the program started in August 2020. The duration of the program is three years. Since August 2020, the 50 ehsas nashonuma centers have been opened in 14 districts. The Ehsaas centers will be opened in every district. The financial assistance for deserving families will continue for three years.

What is Stunting:

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), stunting is a developmental weakness due to poor diet and persistent infections. In Pakistan, high rates of stunting (40.2%), underweight (28.9%) and vesting (17.7%) indicates the ongoing food crisis in children. Stents negatively affect brain function, organ development, and the immune system, ultimately limiting productivity.

What is the Importance of Ehsaas Nashonuma:

In his first address to the nation, the Prime Minister highlighted malnutrition and vowed to solve this problem. Under the vision of PM Imran Khan, the Ehsaas has introduced a new conditional cash transfer (CCT) program called “Ehsas Nashonuma“.

Practical Implementation of Ehsaas Nashonuma Programme:

In the first phase, a pilot project has been launched in 14 districts of the country, which have been selected based on higher stunt rates and in consultation with the concerned provincial health department.

At the tehsil level, 50 Ehsaas Nashonuma Centers have been set up under which all health-related facilities and services can be provided in one place. The World Health Organization (WHO) has been hired as an implementation partner to carry out all program activities.
