Challenges

- As impact of COVID-19 in 2020, suspension of community activities and supply transportation interruption during the peak periods in April and August, there were low performances and high defaulters at treatment of acute malnutrition program.

- Travel access and community movement restrictions due to security reason and COVID-19 pandemic causes limited community or direct activity implementation.

- Limited resources and capacities of partners for nutrition in emergency response require competency based training, coaching and mentoring

- Weak supply chain and information management system to support quality service delivery

- Challenging context of Rakhine including high numbers of girls admitted for SAM treatment compared to boys require strong gender analysis and gender responsive approaches
