Action Against Hunger’s international network produces a variety of published works from context analysis and regional assessments to community surveys and field reports.
Feedback and Complaint Mechanisms (FCM) are an essential component of transparent and accountable humanitarian response. Action Against Hunger provides formal feedback channels in the majority of its country programs. To document good practices and lessons learned, a qualitative study was undertaken focused on the FCMs in use by Action Against Hunger in Pakistan and Uganda.
This case study documents the experience of implementing the Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) approach in Northern Bahr el Ghazal, South Sudan. It first presents the context and project background, then the CLTS approach and how it was implemented, and its results. Finally, challenges and solutions are reported, and reflections on the way forward are proposed.
What Does It Mean to Implement a Research Uptake Strategy? Experiences from the REFANI Consortium
Researching How Cash Transfers Impact Communities in Sindh, Pakistan: Q&A with REFANI-Pakistan’s Qualitative ResearcherMay, 2016
The REFANI-Pakistan qualitative researcher explains what kind of information she collected in Dadu, Pakistan, and how it will help fill the evidence gap on nutritional outcomes in cash transfer programming.
The REFANI Somalia study was a non-randomized cluster controlled intervention trial to assess the impact of cash transfer programmes in reducing the risk acute malnutrition in children aged 6-59 months living in internally displaced person (IDP) camps. It was a collaboration between the Institute for Global Health at University College London (UCL) and Concern Worldwide.
The REFANI Niger study was a cluster randomised controlled trial (cRCT) of the effectiveness and cost-efficiency of early initiation and longer duration of emergency/seasonal unconditional cash transfers on children’s nutritional status (ISRCTN 25360839). Led by the Institute for Global Health at University College of London (UCL), a trial of an unconditional emergency/seasonal cash transfer programme (CTP) was being implemented by Concern Worldwide in Tahoua Department, Niger.

Nigeria is ranked as the third country with the highest absolute number of children less than five years of age in need of treatment for severe acute malnutrition. In 2012, the nutritional anthropometric survey conducted in Yobe State, indicated global acute malnutrition (GAM) rates of 14.5% and severe acute malnutrition (SAM) rates of 3.1%. In February 2011, Action Against Hunger began supporting a sustainable approach to integration of community– based management of acute malnutrition (CMAM) for SAM in three Local Government Areas (LGAs) in Yobe State, Nigeria.
