As of March-April 2017, 6 out of 20 districts analysed were facing alarming levels of acute malnutrition in a total of 8 provinces. Two districts (Chiúre and Namuno in the province of Cabo Delgado) were classified as “Critical” (IPC phase 4 of IPC-Acute Mlanutrition), and two districts (Mutarara in Tete, Ancuabe in Cabo Delgado) were classified as Alert/Serious (IPC phase 2/3 of the IPC-Acute Malnutrition). In all 20 districts covered, about 30,000 children were experiencing different forms of acute malnutrition.

For the May-September 2017 period, the acute food insecurity and acute malnutrition situation is expected to improve due to an improved access to food and a reduction in childhood diseases expected in this period. 

From October 2017 to February 2018, the acute malnutrition situation may be exacerbated by the expected deterioration of the food insecurity situation, as well as the increase in diseases compounded with a possible reduction of child care.
