    Nutrition and Mortality Survey and Rapid Assessment Training Facilitator

     

    Context and General Objective of the Training

    • In MSF we work in contexts where populations are suffering from chronic food insecurity, where agricultural economies are vulnerable to crop failure and unstable food prices. Sudden emergencies such as floods, earthquakes or population displacement due to conflict where populations are rapidly cut-off from their income sources, can aggravate this chronic food insecurity.
    • In those contexts there is a need to analyze timely and qualitatively the nutrition and mortality status of the population in order to decide the best strategy
    • The validity and reliability of data are crucial, since data are used for decision making about programme implementation. The quality is more important than the quantity of data collected and available secondary data need to be reviewed carefully.
    • Assessments and surveys should follow standardized protocols and tools available.

    • To improve MSF capacity to assess the nutritional and mortality situation of a population in a given context
