We are posting the Situation Analysis of Acute Malnutrition in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh written by our friends and colleagues at Action Against Hunger (ACF). While putting together this report their teams visited RMF in the field multiple times and spent time learning about ground realities from RMF CNEs and ground staff. RMF is always happy to host great organizations like ACF in the field and also learned a lot from their experts who visited. We’re looking forward to collaborating more with ACF in the future and thank them for this informative report.
RMF’s role in the study is mentioned by ACF here:
“Other than advocacy, under-nutrition is not a high priority activity for most local NGOs nor is there any specific technical expertise on this issue generally available in the local non-governmental sector. Real Medicine Foundation (RMF-India), an international NGO recently active in 500 villages of the Malwa Tribal Belt, runs a nutrition program aiming at improvement of community detection and nutrition education. They identify and facilitate the amelioration of missing linkages between AWC and community health structures, surveying the nutritional situation of the intervention area, collecting and analyzing data from the MUAC screenings.”
