Levels of acute malnutrition in Somalia have increased since July 2016. Results from 27 separate nutrition surveys conducted between November and December 2016 by FSNAU and partners indicate that an estimated 363 000 children under the age of five are acutely malnourished, including 71 000 who are severely malnourished and face increased risk of morbidity and death. Global Acute Malnutrition (GAM) prevalence is above the Critical (15%) threshold in 13 out of 27 rural and displaced population groups surveyed. Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM) is Critical/Very Critical (≥4.0%) in 6 out of 27 rural and displaced population groups surveyed.
