Project Description

PAIMAN is a USAID funded project designed to reduce Pakistan's material, 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 the Media Storming Project, PAIMAN wanted to conduct a 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 and the endline survey will be conducted.
