OUADINUT Project - WASH and Nutrition Integration

2014 - 2016 • Action Contre La Faim (ACF, Action Against Hunger)

Purpose

Research on the benefits of a household WASH package to Community Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM) program in Chad

Activities

The study is conducted in Chad, Mao and Mondo districts of the Kanem region.

In the context of nutritional rehabilitation of SAM (Severe Acute Malnutrition), it is hypothesized that improving water quality and hygiene-related care practices at household level would decrease incidences of WASH-related infections, such as diarrhoea, nematode and environmental enteric dysfunction (EED). As such, it would improve weight gain, decrease relapses after successful discharge, and overall, could decrease over time the incidence of acute malnutrition in the community.
