INTRODUCTION

The National Nutrition Surveillance System (NNSS) was incorporated into Palestinian Authority health planning in 2006.

Nutrition assessments at that time showed worrying deteriorations in important indicators and it was decided that a more systematic approach was needed to monitor health trends in the occupied Palestinian territory.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health’s Nutrition Department implements the NNSS programme, with technical support and funding from UNICEF and the World Health Organization (WHO). This summary report covers the period between January and June.
