Focusing on women of reproductive age GIZ (Deutsche Gesellschaft für international Zusammenarbeit) launched two “Affordable Nutritious Foods for Women” projects (ANF4W) in Bangladesh and Ghana in October and November 2013.

The ANF4W project aims to increase the local supply and demand of affordable nutritious foods presently lacking in many markets in Asia and Africa. It is a project co-financed by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is co-ordinating the implementation.

In Bangladesh GIZ will collaborate with Bayer CropScience. The co-operation agreement signed in October refers to a pilot running for 18 months in Bangladesh, with the intention to develop it into a full project, covering additional countries and crops. Investment of all parties involved amounts to about 1.2 million euros.
Bayer CropScience and GIZ will be collaborating in Bangladesh, where the objective is to improve the nutrient intake of women of reproductive age in regard to iron, zinc, as well as, potentially, calcium, folic acid, vitamins A and B6.

A further co-operation project was signed in Ghana in November 2013.
