Fighting Malnutrition in Sudan

In Sortoni camp, North Darfur, UNICEF supports systematic monthly screening of children to identify severe acute malnutrition and the provision of treatment.

 

From January to November 2016, 56 992 children were cumulatively screened. Out of those, 1948 children were found with severe acute malnutrition and provided with life-saving therapeutic treatment.

 

Furthermore, 16 233 pregnant and lactating mothers received counselling on recommended infant and young child feeding practices while 5740 children aged between 6-59 months received vitamin A supplementation.

 

UNICEF, with funding from the EU, works in partnership with the Ministry of Health, Anhar and MSF-Spain.
