Nutrition Situation

In October and November 2009, FSNAU with partners conducted 9 representative nutrition surveys in Central/Northeast (Galgadud, Mudug, Nugal), Hiran and Togdheer regions. The results of the surveys indicate a Sustained Nutritional Crisis in Central/Northeast and Hiran regions, with a less concerning, yet Critical situation in Togdheer region. In addition, 17 nutrition surveys were undertaken in December1 2009; findings from these surveys, together with those from the ongoing FSNAU Deyr '09/10 seasonal rapid food security and nutrition assessments (in areas where full scale nutrition surveys have not been conducted), will be shared in the FSNAU/Partners Technical Meetings in January 2010 and in the Post Deyr '09/10 Nutrition Technical Series due mid February 2010.
