BFD has been contributing to reducing the morbidity & mortality rates and the number of malnourished children under five & pregnant and lactating women and has strongly been focusing on the nutrition programs in Yemen in both aspects; technical as preparing national guides in Nutrition, carrying out nutritional surveys i.e. SMART and KAP and assessment programs, and; work spans from responses activities through both community and facilities levels programs.
BFD prioritizes the prevention of malnutrition as it reduces human suffering, where it is the most effective path to long-lasting results. When children under five and pregnant and lactating women (PLW) do suffer from acute malnutrition, which is inadequate nutrition, leading to rapid weight loss, or wasting — BFD provides treatment and links it to long-term care to prevent them from becoming malnourished again.
