Abt Associates: Bold thinkers driving real-world impact
Abt Associates’ USAID-funded Market-Based Solutions to Reduce Poverty and Improve Nutrition (MBS) project is working to dramatically increase the supply of and demand for nutritious and fortified foods in Tanzania, especially among vulnerable populations in the food-insecure regions of Morogoro, Dodoma and Manyara.
