Technical support of the Koro Sanitary District towards a transition and autonomous management of integrated management of acute malnutrition

The 18-month project proposal is in line with the dynamics of technical support for health workers in the transition and autonomous management of integrated prevention, screening and management of malnutrition acute disease in the Sanitary District (DS) of Koro.

The overall objective is to contribute to the reduction of mortality and morbidity associated with acute malnutrition in children under 5 years, pregnant and breastfeeding women in the Koro Sanitary District. To this end, the project intends to support the integration of the PCIMA through the implementation of a disengagement plan favoring the empowerment of health centers in the CEP and the sustainability of the community mechanisms for prevention against malnutrition. A focus on advocacy and accountability activities was established. This intervention was developed on the basis of the lessons learned from the two years of intervention in the SD, the results of the evaluation of the integration level grid and the SQUEAC survey. In total, the project targeted 76,462 people (FEFA, children aged 6-59 months, health workers, ASACO members, etc.) and 87 organizations (Koro DS, town councils of the 16 communes of Koro, , 26 UREN, FELASCOM, FENASASCOM, Steering Committee and 40 functional community health sites).
