PDF File Size: 576 KB | Download   
An estimated 404,000 children under age-5 and 185,000 Pregnant and Lactating Women (PLWs) are at risk of acute malnutrition.
Based on revised estimations from the health management information system, up to 2,500 children (6 to 59 months) are projected to suffer from severe acute malnutrition (SAM) in the coming months and similarly around 14,500 (boys and girls) under age-5 will suffer from moderate acute malnutrition (MAM). These figures are based on pre-crisis data from the Nepal demographic and health survey of 2011 which indicate that the Global Acute Malnutrition prevalence is at 10.9 per cent. More than 185,000 PLWs are also at risk of malnutrition and micro-nutrient deficiencies in the 14 worst-affected districts. These
vulnerable groups will require sustained nutrition support.
