Présentation
The humanitarian situation in Banadir Region is appalling. Th population is constantly in displacement due to conflict/violence. A rapid MUAC assessment conducted in December 2010(FSNAU) in six district sites of Mogadishu reported acute malnutrition rate of >15% and Severe MUAC (<11.5 cm or oedema) rate of >3%. This situation is seen to have deteriorated from the Post Gu rapid nutrition assessments done by FSNAU-September 2010 on 620 children which showed the situation to be critical. This is attributed to the continuing aggravating factors such as poor shelter, water and sanitation, access to health services, civil insecurity and displacements into the surrounding poor urban settlements. The security situation remains volatile.
The project aims to provide nutrition treatment to children under five, pregnant and lactating women reducing malnourishment through a community-based nutrition programme, providing 8400 women and 40131 children with evidence based nutrition intervention services in line with Basic Nutrition Service (BNSP) Package and strengthening the capacity of the local partners.
