Intervention package

The SPRING intervention package has been developed taking into account the cultural differences between India and Pakistan.

Both packages deliver a home based intervention from pregnancy till the infant is 2 years of age to ALL mothers in the intervention areas. They will encourage family participation and also involve a range of supporting activities.

The key elements of SPRING are to:

  • Promote key newborn & child survival interventions
  • Enhance care giving skills, using an adaptation of the WHO/UNICEF Care for Development Package
  • Support optimal infant & young child feeding practices
  • Use a supportive counselling approach to help mothers help and play with their children.
