The project will provide a comprehensive and integrated package of primary health services, as well as reproductive and nutrition services that target the most vulnerable individuals in the community. Through the support of the existing health structures as well as building the capacity of health staff, the project will gradually link relief to development and enhance the resilience of the community and health structures to future shocks in the system. The project will undertake the Community Management of Malnutrition Approach (CMAM), thus providing assistance in a community participatory manner, and will target both Children U5 (CU5) and Pregnant and Lactating Women (PLW). As a result of this response the project will have improved utilization of essential health services by the IDPs and isolated host communities, especially women and children and also will have a reduced prevalence of acute malnutrition in CU5 and pregnant and lactating women with a shared responsibility for malnutrition and health issues between local authorities, IDPs, and host community members.
