Afghanistan Nutrition Situation Overview
"This 17th Edition of To Walk the Earth In Safety summarizes the United States' CWD programs in 2017. CWD assistance provides the United States with a powerful and flexible tool to help partner countries manage their stockpiles of munitions, destroy excess small arms and light weapons (SA/LW) and clear explosive hazards such as landmines, improvised explosive devices (IEDs), and UXO. Our assistance also helps countries destroy or enhance security of their man-portable air defense systems (MANPADS) and their threat to civilian aviation, in addition to other weapons and munitions.
Good achievements but need for more
The Public Nutrition Directorate (PND) of The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) and their partners have for the last two years (2015 -2017) focused on strengthening the monitoring and reporting of nutrition supply chain activities within the country to ensure efficient and effective management of end-to-end supply chain activities.

The two-day forum, which began yesterday in the Tajik capital Dushanbe, is part of the multi-year program: “_Combating Human Trafficking in Persons_” (CTIP), funded by USAID and implemented by IOM.
1. General Overview:
I. The last winter season (2017/2018), was mild as compared to 2017 but with severe cold temperatures. Minus 14 degree was reported in Badakhshan, Bamyan, Daykundi, Paktyia and Ghazni while temperature in Kabul went to minus 8 degree during the winter. There were few incidents of avalanches and limited snow fall.
More than 500 women and girls die in emergency settings every day due to complications arising from pregnancy and childbirth (UNFPA, 2018, p. 3). In 2017, an estimated 535 million children (nearly one in four of the world’s children) lived in countries affected by emergencies (UNICEF, 2017). This report provides examples of organisations working in maternal, newborn and child health (MNCH) in emergency settings and some key technical resources.

This evaluation provides an independent assessment of the European Commission's Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations’ (DG ECHO’s) interventions in the humanitarian health sector during the period 2014 to 2016. The evaluation, launched by DG ECHO in November 2016, was carried out by ICF Consulting Services Ltd, with specialist inputs from humanitarian aid and health experts.
