Contexte
Malnutrition is a critical risk in Somalia and good nutrition and access to adequate food remains a challenge to child survival. According to nutrition up-date Dec 2014 Post Dyer results show a high prevalence of acute malnutrition (GAM >10%) in 10/13 IDP assessed compared to 12/13 IDP in Post GU. Critical levels of acute malnutrition were recorded in five IDP- Baidoa Dollo, Bosaso, Garowe and Galkayo . Critical levels of SAM were recorded among Dolo 4.3% and Dhusamareb 4.2%. Sustained prevalence of critical SAM levels in these IDP suggests that nutrition support services to treat these children need to be scaled up. In South region, HIS (Health Information System) trends (July – September) show critical levels pf acute malnutrition are sustained among Bay agro-pastoral, Bakol pastoral and in Kismayu and Dhobley IDP while deterioration in nutrition was noted in Beletwene, Shebele and Gedo region. Increasing malnutrition trends in most southern regions is a reflection of households exhausting their cereal stocks and rising food prices due to civil insecurity, limited movement of food commodities impacting negatively on trade. The HIS data from health facilities in Central Somalia shows very high prevalence rates, that are consistent with the historical trends observed in the MCH in the region. This has also been reflected by WFP nutrition program expansion : - in these areas WFP had to increase the MAM caseload to accommodate more children who were malnourished

Présentation
WFP operates in all the Somalia zones through a network of local and international NGO implementing various modalities : TSFP treatment, BSFP and MCHN targeting under 2. Considering the current coverage in TSFP and BSFP coverage, WFP plans to reach 5048 under five and 2184 pregnant and lactating mothers through TSFP. The food requirements for TSFP is 119.87 MT for 6 months duration. WFP also supports a large range of livelihood interventions in all the zones (food for asset creation, food for training) to increase households’ food access. This CHF grant will seek to complement the current on-going grant through expansion of nutrition services to reach more children. Active case finding through MUAC will be emphasized through the community out-reach component. The priority activities will be (a) strengthening provision of Community Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM) - MAM services in order to increase access (expansion) to services across the areas with high malnutrition rates ; (b) and strengthening community services through trained community nutrition workers . WFP nutrition partners now include the minimum Basic Nutrition Service Package in their partnership agreements. The BNSP thus ensures minimum preventive service is given that includes health education, promotion of IYCF, micro-nutrient supplementation, de-worming to ensure that nutrition is approached holistically rather than from a uniquely curative perspective.
