Description and results


March 2020 – The humanitarian situation in Myanmar is characterized by a complex combination of vulnerability to armed conflict, inter-communal tension, protracted displacement and food insecurity. It is estimated that 985,000 crisis-affected people are in need of humanitarian assistance this year, including more than 273,000 displaced people (of which 69% are women and children) who remain in camps or camp-like settings across the country. With GAC’s support, Action Against Hunger is providing quality, gender-responsive undernutrition prevention and treatment services to vulnerable populations in the Northern Rakhine State of Myanmar. Project activities include: (1) treating acutely malnourished children, and pregnant and lactating women; (2) referring cases of severe acute malnutrition to outpatient treatment centres; and (3) delivering infant and young child feeding counselling to pregnant and lactating women, and caretakers of children.

Expected results

The expected outcome of this project is improved access to gender-responsive undernutrition prevention and treatment programs and services by women, adolescent girls and children. The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated and human dignity maintained in communities experiencing humanitarian crises or that are food insecure.
