The fight against Ebola

Is there one thing you never leave home without? For Francis, there are two: his toolbox and a first aid kit. As a carpenter, he was already used to fixing things in his community. Now he has been trained by Save the Children as a Community Health Worker, so he can also provide basic medical care.

A Nutrition and Food Security Assessment of the Dry Zone of Myanmar in June and July 2013

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

OVERVIEW

This assessment of the rural Dry Zone reveals the nutrition situation to be a concern, with high rates of wasting and medium rates of stunting, high rates of low birth weight and high rates of undernutrition among mothers; particularly those who are pregnant and/or lactating. The pattern of indicators suggests that flood plains and irrigated areas are best off, and the highlands may be worst, but the situation is far from acceptable in the Dry Zone as a whole.
