By Action Against Hunger September 2010

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.
