Nutrition Response Progress June 2023 Vol.3

In June, 3,977 adolescent girls 10-19 years old were supplemented with iron folic acid tablets in two districts (Machinga and Blantyre). The adolescent girls also received counseling on dietary diversification and consumption of iron rich foods to reduce their susceptibility to anemia.  Through the Back-to-School campaign, 4,931 children in 62 Community Based Childcare Centres (CBCCs) benefitted from 98 ECD kits which include various playing and learning materials promoting early stimulation and learning for the children.  In June, 832,488 children under five were screened in 11 districts and 12,491 children (1.5%) were identified to be malnourished and referred to health facilities for further treatment (1,936 children with SAM and 10,555 children with MAM).
