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.
At national level, the November performance indicators shows 95% cure rate for children under five, and 97% cure rate for pregnant and breast-feeding women. Invariably, the other indictors like death and default rates have remained low for both groups.
