Since 2008, ACF spain has been overseeing a malnutrition treatment program by supporting five health centers integrated in the Conakry region of Guinea. ACF Spain and its partners have been supporting local intitiatives such as, "Porridge Mums," who produce and sell nutritious food (predominately for children and newborns) by strengthening the capacity of these projects to ensure a sustainable improvement in income and participate, through their action, to malnutrition prevention. Income and nutritional education are two pillars that ACF Spain and its partners have focused their activities on.

What factors influence access to community-based treatment of severe acute malnutrition? Volume 2 of the Access for All series aims to contribute to the emerging body of evidence on barriers to SAM treatment services. First, this volume examined over 40 coverage assessments carried out by the Coverage Monitoring Network in over 20 countries to identify common barriers to access and understand how these vary according to programmes and contexts. Next, the public health literature was reviewed to determine whether these barriers were unique to SAM treatment services.  Finally, the volume incorporated findings from three country case studies in Ethiopia, Kenya and Pakistan, designed to provide complementary qualitative data and analysis on access to community based SAM treatment and giving a human perspective on barriers and their effect on the lives of those seeking care.

In 2013, 870 million people are still undernourished while 2 billion people are affected by micronutrient malnutrition or "hidden hunger".  Agriculture is a major component of local food systems, these systems allow people to produce, transform, distribute and consume food.  Making agricultural policies deliver better nutrition represents one of the greatest challenges as well as one of the greatest opportunities to achieving good nutrition for the hungry and undernourished people of the world.  This report aims to assess to what extent the global agenda on nutrition and agriculture is actually translating into action at country level, based on three country case studies conducted in Burkina Faso, Kenya, and Peru.  The report aims to answer three main questions: -- (1) How do national agricultural policies integrate nutritional issues? (2) What are the main constraints to agricultural policies improving efforts to end undernutrition? (3) How best could these constraints be alleviated?
