Prevent malnutrition among the most vulnerable groups by treating severe and moderate acute malnutrition.
Proper nutrition is a powerful goal; people who are well nourished are more likely to be healthy, productive and able to learn. Good nutrition benefits families, their communities and the world as a whole. Malnutrition is by the same logic devastating. Good nutrition is the bedrock of child survival, health and development. Well-nourished children are better able to grow and learn to participate in and contribute to their communities and to be resilient in the face of diseases, disasters, and other global crises.
In Turkana County health and nutrition are intricately linked with farming, food production, income generation, and culture and community life. Through our programme, we support local capacities for drawing up policies and plans for fighting malnutrition, basic maternal, newborn and child health care; communicable disease prevention and control, adolescent sexual and reproductive health, detection and treatment of acute malnutrition and breastfeeding promotion.
