Micronutrient Powder Use and Outcomes in Refugee Camps in Nepal (ASIA)
PDF File Size: 550 KB | Download   
According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the number of refugees at the end of 2007 stood at 11.4 million, including 1.7 million people considered to be in a refugee-like situation. Developing countries hosted 82% of the global refugee population and the 50 least-developed countries provided asylum to
18% of the world’s refugees. Children and adolescents represent the majority of people of concern in Africa and Asia. It is well known that micronutrient malnutrition is an important public health concern in populations dependent on food assistance, such as refugees and displaced persons.
In Nepal some 100,000 Bhutanese of Nepali ethnicity live in seven refugee camps in southeastern Nepal and are highly dependent on food relief and rations from the World Food Programme (WFP). As a result of a survey in February 2007 by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), that indicated a high prevalence of anemia (43.3%) and chronic malnutrition,i.e. stunting, (26.9%) amongst the children aged 6-59 months in Damak refugee camp, a comprehensive Micronutrient Powder (MNP) program was initiated to supplement the food rations.
