Undernutrition Screenings and Treatment

The Big Picture

Goal: $50,000
  $0 raised
Today, undernutrition is the single greatest threat to child survival worldwide and the underlying cause of nearly half of all child deaths. However, hunger is predictable, preventable, and treatable.

Action Against Hunger's nutrition and health programs train local health care workers and partners to screen and treat undernutrition, and we provide technical expertise and support to strengthen local health systems. In severe humanitarian emergencies, we sometimes directly deliver emergency nutrition programs to provide lifesaving treatment to acutely undernourished children, but our aim is to transfer our knowledge, work in partnership with communities, and strengthen what is already working via local health care services to ensure sustainable impact. We also work in more stable contexts, and after crises subside, to build communities' resilience to hunger and mitigate the causes and consequences of undernutrition.
