Abstract

This survey was conducted in SNNP Region, Gamgofa Zone,  Arbaminch zuria 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 2.7% of them were classified as global acute malnutrition (GAM), which includes 0.3 % of children with severe acute malnutrition (SAM). The crude mortality rate and under-five mortality rate were estimated at 0.08 and 0.15 deaths/10,000/day respectively.
  2. About 18.3 % of the children suffered from diarrhea, 24.8 % from cough, and 20.2% from fever. The percentage of children vaccinated against measles by card, TB (BCG), and who received vitamin A in the last 6 months were 51.8 %, 65.8 %, and 93.4% of the respondents respectively.   
  3. The Woreda potable water coverage is very low and the survey findings indicate that around 44% of the surveyed villages (most of them are from mid and high land rural kebeles) used unsafe water source
