HKI wishes to endorse the first two Nutritional Interventions during Antenatal Care (ANC) recommendations for inclusion in DHS-8 (2018-2023).
We have had field experience testing question 1 during survey work in Bangladesh, with a two-year recall period as is now the recommendation, and we found the question was easily understood and correlated well with better growth outcomes. We also believe that indicator 2 on taking maternal weight during ANC would be easy to add to the questionnaire module.

HKI, JPGSPH, "State of Food Security and Nutrition in Bangladesh: 2014" (Dhaka, BD, 2016).

We are less certain of the use of questions 3 and 4. For question 3, we are not certain if the respondent will be able to judge that the weight information was used in the discussion. A separate composite indicator could be produced form question 1 and 2 with much the same meaning.

For question 4, it is unclear if the respondent will know if the program was linked to the pregnancy or just given at the same time. Even if not linked to the pregnancy, access to such support is useful information but the use of the information is unclear.
