UNICEF Tanzania proposes to maintain indicators 1, 2 and 3 as maternal nutrition is increasingly a priority in the country, and this information is highly needed for evidence based planning and programming to improve ANC services.

We propose to maintain both indicators 2 and 3, because this will provide clearer information on where is the bottleneck in ANC services, i.e. on measuring weight, or providing counselling based on measurements.

We propose to remove indicator 4, because it is very programme specific and is not relevant for Tanzania which is mostly a food secure country where there is no need of food assistance for pregnant women.
