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 Pakistan study is a cluster randomised control trial (cRCT) of the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of different cash transfer programmes on child nutrition status (ISRCTN 10761532). Led by the Emergency Nutrition Network (ENN), the Pakistan study aligns with on-going implementation of the Action Against Hunger Women and children/infants Improved Nutrition in Sindh (WINS) programme in Dadu District, Sindh Province, funded by the European Union.
The Porridge Mum approach employed by Action Against Hunger in Borno State, Nigeria, provides a platform for women to come together, learn and discuss issues related to improved child caring and feeding practices. Porridge Mum groups ensure that children under five and pregnant and lactating women (PLW) receive one supplementary nutritious meal per day.
The fight against malnutrition and hunger in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is a challenge that Action Against Hunger has worked to address for close to ten years. The Action Against Hunger’s DRC nutrition emergency pool is the mission’s flagship and longest-running program. The pool works in close collaboration with the Ministry of Health (MoH) and its division, PRONANUT, to confirm nutrition crisis alerts through rapidly deployed SMART surveys and respond to confirmed crisis through emergency intervention teams.
