Guide to Maternal, Newborn and Child Health and Nutrition in Emergencies
This guide aims to:
- better define focus areas of response for direct humanitarian programming and advocacy in acute phase of an emergency
- build consistency around a discrete 'package' of effective MNCH and nutrition services delivered in an acute phase of a disaster
- provide a clear rationale for expanded approaches and interventions for more comprehensive MNCH and nutrition, which may require operational research, strategic training, collaborative partnerships and more stable situations.
