Get Involved

All stakeholders who are in direct contact with pregnant women and caregivers of children aged 0-5 years have a role to play in Side-by-Side. By displaying or repeating the Side-by-Side messages and directing caregivers to the Side-by-Side communication channels, stakeholders increase the volume and the footprint of messages.
