Nutrition

We support six integrated emergency feeding centres in Blue Nile State that aim to reduce malnutrition-related deaths and diseases by ensuring community-centred approaches and guided by the national guidelines and international best practices. We partnered with the scale-up nutrition (SUN) movement to expand services in Blue and White Nile States. Since 2018 , around 11,917 children under 5 years children were screened for malnutrition in the supported areas and communities. About 1,813 children and 834 pregnant & lactating women were treated for acute malnutrition in ADD-supported nutrition programme centres. In addition, around 1,623 under 5 years children and 416 mothers benefited from ADD blanket supplementary feeding programme (BSFP) in Blue Nile State. Further 4,615 children below 2 years benefited from IYCF facility and community-based services. ADD-trained community health volunteers (CHVs) reached to around 6,942 households with key health and nutrition messages.
