Current Challenges

 

  1. Chronic malnutrition and maternal malnutrition are affecting annually more than 0.5 Million children 6-59 months and 0.3 Million mothers respectively. This problem is very much masked by the relatively low global acute malnutrition levels in Syria.
  2. Funding to nutrition sector remains low at 28 percent of the annually appealed funds.
  3. Remote programming in cross-border areas which requires close coordination and collaboration with partners to ensure the required quality and coverage.
  4. Deteriorating economic situation and devaluation of the local currency as well as the ongoing COVID19 pandemic are expected to deteriorate nutrition situation of mothers and children.
  5. In the case UN security council resolution is not renewed beyond July 2020, delivering life-saving nutrition to more than 1 Million mothers and children will be extremely challenging.
