  1. Nutrition and health
  2. Water, sanitation & Hygiene
  3. Food security and resources of existence
  4. Mental health, care practices, gender and protection
  5. Advocacy
  6. Research

 

Nutrition & Health

 

Action Against Hunger is much more than food. Improving the coverage of essential health and nutrition interventions throughout the entire spectrum of maternal and childcare, including the treatment of malnutrition, is our priority. 

In the aftermath of emergencies related to conflict and various sudden and diverse disasters, Action Against Hunger implements projects at the heart of populations to improve reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health, with a particular focus on essential nutritional interventions. 

Whether you are a doctor, nutritionist, nurse, epidemiologist, midwife/maieutician, pharmacist or public health specialist, we need your help to respond to global health and nutrition crises, support health systems and ultimately ensure the autonomy of actors.

Research

Action Against Hunger believes that research, innovation and learning are essential to achieving its vision of a world without hunger and undernutrition. Our research is fundamentally linked to our operational programs and aims to improve the quality of our interventions through quantitative and qualitative studies, to better understand the causes of undernutrition in a given region, optimize the diagnosis of severe acute malnutrition and define new modalities for treatment/prevention of undernutrition. 

In 2017, 52 research projects were carried out in 26 countries, involving 48 partners and 25% of our research projects were multisectoral. 

One of our biggest projects is MAM’OUT and MANGO in Burkina Faso.
