WFP Myanmar: Nutrition Programme

WFP Myanmar: Nutrition Programme

Despite recent progress, undernutrition rates in Myanmar continue to be among the highest of the region. The pace of progress has been uneven and the country is facing significant challenges: Myanmar is off course to meet the World Health Assembly targets for wasting, anemia and stunting.

Reducing undernutrition and eliminating food insecurity have been WFP’s priorities. WFP implements nutrition activities in Chin, Kachin, Magway, northern Shan and Rakhine, targeting to reach 145,000 PLW and young children with more than 4,100 tons of blended food in 2016.
