Project Status:

Ongoing Projects

Lead Faculty:

Nadia Akseer

Save the Children and Johns Hopkins University (JHU) are researching what combinations and durations of assistance are most effective and cost-effective to prevent severe and moderate acute malnutrition. To increase access to food and prevent wasting, Save the Children, funded by USAID’s Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA), is implementing the CashPlus for Nutrition project
in Somalia to alleviate hunger of the most affected families and children. This project includes Unconditional Cash Transfers (UCT) for food assistance and social and behavior change communication (SBCC). In the Hiiraan and Bay regions of Somalia, the Save the Children and JHU teams, along with national partners from the Ministry of Health and Somali National Bureau of Statistics, will conduct an evaluation to assess: What combinations of assistance are most effective and cost-effective to prevent wasting for children under five and pregnant and lactating women?
