Improving the Nutrition of Female Garment Workers in Dhaka

Commitment by

Business For Social Responsibility (Bsr), Global Alliance For Improved Nutrition (Gain)

In 2014, GAIN and BSR committed to improve women's nutritional health in Dhaka, Bangladesh by 2017, through education, behavior change, and better access to health services for girls in late adolescence (15-19 years) and women of reproductive age working in the garment industry. This commitment will provide direct services to the women, including food supplementation, health and nutrition services, and how to advocate for better maternity protection and child care facilities in the workplace. Return-on-investment in nutrition will result in a reduction of absenteeism and work accidents, and an increase in workforce productivity and retention.
