Tackling malnutrition in Niger

The Red Cross programmes set up by the French Red Cross in cooperation with the Niger Red Cross support capacity-building for health agents who are trained in the national protocols for the treatment of malnutrition. Under these programmes, integrated health centres (IHCs) are equipped with anthropometric material (scales and height gauges) for evaluating children’s nutritional status, as well as medical equipment to ensure a thorough examination of children when they arrive at the IHC, while therapeutic foods are provided for treatment. This case study presents the French Red Cross approach to integrated programme activities. Published in 2011.
