Identify Malnutrition in Young Children

Arri ward


After running a broad health survey in Ayalagaya ward in 2021, we concluded that malnutrition in children up to 5 years old is not prevalent. We want to understand if this is also the case in Arri ward. Our focus for this malnutrition survey is the poorest of the poor households in Arri, which we've identified combining several criteria.


Before running a broad health survey in the Arri ward, if there are any childhood malnutrition cases there, we want to identify them fast and treat those cases ASAP, without having to wait for the long cycle of a large health survey. Additionally if we can verify that there are no or minimal malnutrition cases, we can cut that section from the larger health survey making the survey process simpler. 



  • Ensure that any cases of malnutrition in young children in Arri ward are promptly identified and treated.
