Abstract

The main objective of this study, a case study of nutrition communication practices in Nepal, was to investigate the role of people's participation in nutrition projects, and the most appropriate modes of nutrition communication in the context of a developing country. Field surveys, focus group discussions and interviews with various key persons involved in nutrition development, at the national and village level in Nepal, were the main field methods used in this study. Quantitative and qualitative analyses were undertaken to enable the author to make an assessment of various approaches to nutrition communication in Nepal.
