SITUATION ANALYSIS

  • An increase in the Global Acute Malnutrition Rate (GAM) trend has also been recorded among the newly displaced populations, which however remains below the WHO emergency threshold.

  • Stunting trends show high prevalence in Idleb and Aleppo, which if not responded to through integrated nutrition sensitive approach, would have long term cognitive and productive impacts on children.

  • Similarly, surveillance data for rural Aleppo shows increasing trends of both acute and chronic malnutrition coupled with an increasing humanitarian need especially in the Euphrates Shield area.
