Malnutrition is one of the greatest threats to child survival worldwide and the underlying cause of nearly half of all child deaths. Action Against Hunger’s expertise in saving malnourished children’s lives is internationally renowned, thanks to our more than four decades of experience working where hunger is most severe and entrenched.
From isolated rural communities to overcrowded urban slums to refugee camps, we prevent and treat undernutrition in more areas in south sudan. We work in humanitarian emergencies and in more stable contexts to improve the health and survival of the most vulnerable children, as well as pregnant women and nursing mothers.
we run centres that screen and treat children for malnutrition, providing them with highly nutritious food or medical care in severe cases. We also support local health workers and communities to identify and manage malnutrition, as well as building the capacity of the Ministry of Health to prevent and address malnutrition.
