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 Research on Food Assistance for Nutritional Impact (REFANI) cost-effectiveness analysis (CEA), led by Action Against Hunger, examines the Pakistan and Niger studies in terms of their cost-effectiveness for nutritional impact achieved.
The REFANI Niger study is a cluster randomised control trial (cRCT) of the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness 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) is 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.
