Nutrition Surveillance Data Analysis Karamoja, Uganda December 2009-May 2012

Between  December  2009  and  May  2012,  the  District  Health  Office  with  support  from ACF-USA implemented a UNICEF-funded nutrition project to reduce child mortality through strengthening the capacity of the Ministry of Health in detection and treatment of acute malnutrition in Uganda. One of the expected results of this project was to have a functional nutrition surveillance system established and strengthened in six districts within Karamoja region (Kaabong, Abim, Kotido, Moroto/Napak, Nakapiripirit, and Amudat).

Starting July 2009, Action Against Hunger (ACF) received funding from UNICEF to build the technical capacity of District Health Offices (DHOs) in Karamoja sub region in implementation of small scale community based nutrition surveillance system. The system is designed to collect data at three intervals: beginning of the hunger gap (April/May), during the peak of malnutrition (end of August), and after the harvest (December).  In this report, we are glad to present the results of the 3rd round and trends of malnutrition in Karamoja.
