Following the successful implementation of the Max-WASH program, Max Foundation awarded Max-WASH II after adding nutrition component name after Max Nutri-WASH programme by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands which is being implemented from November 2016 to October 2021.

Max Foundation has been implementing Healthy Village Campaign Program (HVCP) in Max Nutri-WASH Program areas in 62 Unions of five districts — Patuakhali, Barguna, Khulna, Jessore, and Satkhira — on water supply, sanitation, hygiene, nutrition, Adolescent and Women Reproductive Health (AWRH), Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR), and stunting prevention. One of the key outcomes of HVCP is assisting health promotion agents (HPA), Community Clinic Support Groups (CCSG), and Water Management Groups (WMGs) to work collectively to assist Union Parishads (UPs) to ensure minimizing stunting as far as possible.

The mission of the Max Foundation is to save as many children's lives in the most efficient and effective way. Its integral approach of WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) and health, stunting components like safe motherhood, nutrition is very effective in preventing child mortality. According to the Bangladesh Demographic and Health Survey 2014, 36 percent of children under 5 are short for their age or stunted, while 12 percent are severely stunted (below -3 SD). Rural children are more likely to be stunted than urban children (38 percent compared with 31 percent). Stunting is most prevalent in Sylhet (50 percent) and lowest in Khulna (28 percent).
