Project Description

PAIMAN is a USAID funded project designed to reduce Pakistan’s maternal, neonatal and child mortality.  To achieve this goal in DG Khan, the project will implement a holistic media-mix approach using Mass-Media, Community/Traditional Media and Interpersonal/Group Media approaches.  Before initiating Media Storming Project, PAIMAN wanted to conduct baseline Knowledge, Attitude and Practice (KAP) Study related to the initiation of breastfeeding, exclusive breastfeeding and breastfeeding duration among women and their family members.  At the end of the intervention, an end line survey will be conducted.
