December, 2013

Pakistan experienced some of the worst floods in its history in 2010, affecting more than one-tenth of Pakistan's population.

Accès Pour Tous: Volume 2

November, 2013

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.
