Abstract

This national survey was conducted in the Oromia region of the Borena zone, Abay Woreda, by Goal Ethiopia among selected clusters among children aged 6 and 59 months. The objective of this survey was to estimate the prevalence of acute and chronic malnutrition, examine the current health status of the survey population by considering mortality and morbidity rates and child vitamin A supplementation and vaccination status, and assess the food security situation among children aged 6 to 59 months. The findings of this survey revealed that;

  1. A total of 10.8 % of them were classified as global acute malnutrition (GAM), which includes 1.4 % of children with severe acute malnutrition (SAM). The crude mortality rate and under-five mortality rate were estimated at 0.32 and 0.65 deaths/10,000/day respectively.
