Chad - IPC Training and Analysis of Acute Malnutrition

DATE
05/02/2018 - 13/02/2018
LOCATION
West Africa Chad Ndjamena
ORGANIZER
Cadre Harmonisé and IPC Global Support Unit

The training on the IPC Acute Malnutrition classification aims at introducing the IPC tools and procedures for analysing acute malnutrition. The training aims to prepare countries conducting analyses of malnutrition caused by non-food related factors, such as inadequate caring practices and disease-related causal factors, as well as food related factors. In addition, it equips the participants with a full understanding of both underlying and direct factors that affect nutritional vulnerability. 

The IPC Acute Malnutrition Analysis Workshop examines the situation in two ways: in terms of inadequate quality and/or quantity of consumption of food, which can lead to malnutrition; and an input to food security. The workshop will contribute to meeting the global challenge of addressing malnutrition and achieving nutrition security by informing comprehensive programming that includes investments in the nutrition and food security. It will also assist decision-makers to integrate response for achieving food and nutrition security. The analysis workshop has the potential to bring together different global stakeholder groups not limited to the food security community, the public health community, and the humanitarian and development actors.
