Abstract

Set within the context of North West Pakistan, this paper explores and evaluates the potential of utilising local, community-based Jirgas – a cultural institution composed of all men – for community engagement in research to develop nutrition interventions that address the Right to Food and nutrition security, and improve maternal, neonatal and child health outcomes.
