Challenges

Nutrition interventions alone are not sufficient to address the multiple causes of malnutrition in refugees. The availability of public health inputs is essential in preventing increased malnutrition and in ensuring that nutrition intervention programmes have their desired effects.

Although the quality of nutritional assistance has improved considerably since the 1970s there is still room to move forward. Because so many factors -food, health, care, and environment — interact to determine nutritional well being, partnerships among agencies with different mandates is essential when trying to effectively address and correct nutritional issues. Refugee nutrition must be addressed in tandem with other services in order to ensure that underlying factors of malnutrition are being met and that nutrition interventions are effective.
