Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP)
Current Challenges
  • General disruption of health and nutrition services due to CoVid19 resulted in lower quality of nutrition services; less than expected SAM admissions, less than optimal recovery rates as well as lower than expected vitamin A supplementation coverage
  • Inadequate personal protective equipment (PPE) for Village Health Workers (VHWs) and Health facility staff to continue nutrition services in the context of Covid-19
  • Although nutrition commodities were generally available at the national level, there were challenges of inconsistent distribution and supply chain with some facilities reporting stock-outs of RUTF and MNPs, hence the need for stronger liaison with the logistics team at Provincial and National levels
  • Routine data quality has remained a challenge with the innovative RapidPro system being affected by the service provider's technical issues
