Impact of wash on acute malnutrition

Responding to programmatic questions formulated by technical Nutrition and WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) experts, the 2019 R4ACT report details the impact of 16 WASH activities on acute malnutrition through a systematic screening of scientific publications.

The R4ACT process then proceeded with a workshop in November 2019 to produce programmatic recommendations based on the findings of this systematic review. The workshop gathered NGOS, donors, universities and the WASH and Nutrition Clusters to operationalize the scientific evidence and concluded with the Nanterre Declaration.

The factsheet presents the 6 evidence-based activities defined by the R4ACT partners, centered on ensuring household water quality during severe acute malnutrition treatment. The approach strives to better integrate the WASH and Nutrition sectors in order to more effectively prevent and treat undernutrition through the strengthening of access to water, sanitation and hygiene services.
