Présentation
Somali Young Doctors Associaiton SOYDA is planning to establish 2 outreach new sites (Km15 and Siinka Dheere Internally Displaced Persons IDPs) for the provision of emergency nutrition interventions in Mogadishu Internally Displaced Persons IDPs along the corridor to ensure a comprehensive approach to the reduction of morbidity and mortality associated with malnutrition and other diseases and hazards resulting from lack of access to nutrition services. Most importantly, SOYDA will focus on improvements in the provision of nutrition services for the vulnerable IDP population in target areas.

As it is described in detail in the context analysis, the prospect and prediction for food security and nutrition in Mogadishu remain critical, including Mogadishu long corridor Internally Displaced Persons IDPs remain critical. The major causes of this food and nutrition situation are continuing conflict, displacement and worsening drought in the area, limited purchasing capacity of the communities of Internally Displaced Persons IDPs, prevalence of diseases and inadequate nutrition services, poor infant and young child feeding practice. Because of these, vulnerable groups of the community : children, pregnant and lactating women, at increased risk of morbidity and mortality unless lifesaving intervention is put forward immediately. SOYDA will improve the access and utilization of integrated nutrition services for women and children living Km15 and Siinka Dheer IDPs as well as host communities through the establishment of outreach activities and strengthening of referral system between the Internally Displaced Persons IDPs and the fixed nutrition sites. The project will support on 1500 boys, 1500 girls and 1000 PLW for 2 Outreach Km15 and Siinka Dhere Internally Displaced Persons IDPs. Also the project will scale up the capacity building of the staff as well community through capacitating Integrated Management of Acute Malnutrition (IMAM), Community Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM) and Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF) guidelines for effective case management and referral.

The project will target the most vulnerable members of the Internally Displaced Persons IDPs and host communities living in Km15 and Siinka Dheer IDPs. This includes 1500 girls ; 1500 boys ; 1000 PLW pregnant and lactating women, as well as vulnerable members of their host communities. The overall proposed project activities are specifically targeting women and children (Boys and Girls) less than 5 years of age, Internally Displaced Persons IDPs, Returnees and the host community. Women are considered as vulnerable group because of the dangers they face due to pregnancy and delivery, considering their living conditions and culture. Their vulnerability is increased by the limited nutrition facilities and services that address their basic nutrition needs. Social norms also expect women take up a number of roles and responsibilities, which increase their nutrition risk, especially during pregnancy and lactating. SOYDA will mainstream gender across planned interventions. A gender dimensions based on understanding of women, girls, boys and men’s different needs, roles, responsibilities, capacities and risks will be considered in the consultation, decision making and capacity development. The intervention will ensure equity through the selection of equal numbers of male and female.
