Blurb/Shorttext:
This report summarizes the outcomes of nutrition surveys undertaken in May 2010 in Turkana Central District, Turkana South District, Turkana North East and Turkana North West. The main purpose of the nutrition survey was to estimate the level of acute malnutrition and nutritional oedema among children aged 6-59 months of age. Data was collected on the anthropometric measurements, morbidity status, immunization and vitamin A supplementation coverage, feeding programmes’ coverage, infant and young child feeding practices, food security status of the households and household dietary diversity. The Emergency Nutrition Assessment (ENA) for Standardized Monitoring and Assessment of Relief and Transitions (SMART) was used for the planning, training and for data entry and analysis of anthropometry data. Focus group discussions were conducted with men and women from the community to solicit their perceptions on the causes and possible solutions to the problems of health and nutrition in the camp as well as on the food security situation in Turkana.
