star this property answer text <p>The UK has been at the forefront of building resilience in Somalia since 2013 and is widely acknowledged to have played a leading role in preventing famine in 2017. Our current four year £64 million Building Resilient Communities in Somalia programme has fully integrated the prevention and treatment of malnutrition within the overall community driven approach and will contribute to improved outcomes for malnourished children. The programme is expected to support at least 160,000 women and children through malnutrition treatment and prevention services by 2022. Other donors are following our lead to build resilience in Somalia and break the cycle of dependency on relief aid.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Through our livelihoods and resilience programming in South Sudan, DFID is working with partners to tackle the underlying causes of food insecurity and malnutrition. This includes: supporting households to diversify their income and food sources through crop and vegetable production, fishing and small livestock; working with traders to kick start markets; and supporting training that builds the knowledge and skills which underpin nutritious diets.</p><p> </p><p>These approaches complement the life-saving provision of food, water, nutrition products and medicine through DFID’s humanitarian programming. In addition, DFID’s Health Pooled Fund programme is improving access to nutrition services – both screening and treatment – as part of a package of life-saving care in 800 health centres across South Sudan. In the last year 480,000 children under five were assessed for malnutrition.</p> more like this
