Through the agency of Oxford Policy Management, researchers from The Kohima Institute were engaged as consultants in a World Bank-funded study on primary determinants of health and nutrition status and outcomes in Nagaland. The target groups for the project were pregnant mothers and mothers with children less than 2 years of age and the focus was on health and nutrition services received and nutrition intake of women during and after pregnancy, as well as on child health and nutrition.

The team also investigated changes in service delivery, functionality of health committees and satisfaction with health services in the implementation of the Community Action for Health and Nutrition (CAHN) component of the Nagaland Health Project.

The project began on September 2018 and was concluded at the end of November in the same year.
