DISCLAIMER: Please note that this IPC Acute Malnutrition analysis was integrated with an IPC Acute Food Insecurity analysis.

In the 16 areas analysed in the province of Cabo Delgado, it is estimated, that about 75,000 children under the age of five are suffering and will likely suffer from acute malnutrition in the next 12 months and consequently need treatment. Between October 2020 and March 2021, eight districts and two IDP centres had Alert levels of Acute Malnutrition (IPC Phase 2), while five districts and one IDP centre had Acceptable levels of Acute Malnutrition (IPC Phase 1). Projection analysis of the situation indicates that between April and September 2021, in districts with limited or no humanitarian access, the situation is likely to deteriorate to a Critical one (IPC Phase 4) in one district, to a Serious one (IPC Phase 3) in three districts, and to an Alert one (IPC Phase 2) in four districts. The remaining four districts and three IDP host centres, despite likely deterioration, will likely remain in the same situation. Between October 2021 and January 2022, the situation is projected to continue deteriorating, with two districts with limited or no humanitarian access likely to move into the Critical Phase, six new districts likely to move into the Serious Phase, and one IDP centre likely to move into the Alert Phase. The remaining units of analysis, although the situation may deteriorate, are likely to remain in the same Phases.
