Action Against Hunger’s international network produces a variety of published works from context analysis and regional assessments to community surveys and field reports.
The REFANI Somalia study is a case control study assessing the role of cash transfer programmes in reducing the risk of acute malnutrition in Somalia. In collaboration between the Institute for Global Health at University College of London (UCL) and Concern Worldwide, the Somalia study will study the implementation of an unconditional emergency cash transfer programme (CTP) in the Afgoye Corridor region, close to Mogadishu.
The REFANI literature review identifies existing evidence on the use of Cash Transfer Programmes (CTPs) and their impact on acute malnutrition in humanitarian contexts. The review also identifies key gaps that remain in the evidence base. For more information on REFANI, please visit our website.
