Background & Context
Training of surge capacity staff working on Targeted Supplementary Feeding Programmehas increased the reporting capacity in Afar and Oromia regions.
In November, there were slight improvements in actual beneficiary figures, compared to October. In most regions, the increase is mainly due to new screening figures. Only in Oromia did the beneficiary figures decline, due to the likely impact of Belgand Meherharvest in some of the areas.
Four Mobile Health Nutrition Teams (MHNT), in Dalefage, Hadellela, Dulechaand Semurobi, were trained in screening for malnutrition, admission and treatment.
Treatment of target beneficiaries with specialized nutritious food continued in November, with increased admissions mainly due to new screening figures.
In November, the MHNTs reported 85% cure rate and 15 % default rate for children under five. For pregnant and lactating women cure rate of 81% and default rate 5% were reported.
Treatment activities of the moderately acutely malnourished cases continued as usual in November.
The increase in planned and actual beneficiary numbers can mainly be attributed to new screening figures.
The November performance indicators show 98% cure rate for children under five and, 100% cure rate for pregnant and lactating women. Invariably, death and default rates for both groups have remained low.
Following low level TSFP activities in October due to delayed submission of screening figures, treatment activities for moderately acute malnourished (MAM) cases picked up in November in both regular TSFP woredasand through the Mobile Health and Nutrition Teams (MHNTs).
The MHNT program performance indicators reported 97% cure rate for children under five, and 96% cure rate for pregnant and lactating women. Death and default rates remained low for both groups.
Treatment of a Moderately Acute Malnutrition cases continued as usual in November, with Targeted Supplementary Feeding Programmeactivities reported in all the targeted woredas.
The number of actual beneficiaries reached in November has remained relatively stable compared to October 2016.
Implementation of treatment activities for moderately acute malnutrition cases continued in the month of November.
The beneficiary numbers in Oromia continued to decline due to the likely impact of Belgand Meherharvest in some areas.
The performance indicators show a 99% cure rate for children under five, and 100% cure rate for pregnant and lactating women. Meanwhile, death and default rates for both groups remained low.
Treatment of moderately acute malnourished cases continued in November, with new screening figures resulting in increased admission rate.
In November, the performance indicators reported 94% cure rate, 3% default and non-cure rates for children under five. For pregnant and lactating women, it was reported 99% cure rate and 1% default rate.
Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) Round 1, carried out between September and October, had identified 167,688 persons (30,676 households) who have been displaced in 2016 and remain in situation of displacement in 135 sites across 6 regions (Afar, Gambela, Harari, Oromia, Somali, and Tigray). Of these 33% were as the result of communal conflict, 23% from drought and 44% due to flooding. The majority of displaced population were in Somali, Gambela and Afar regions.
