Abstract

This survey was conducted in the Dire Dawa administrative council, and it was conducted by Goal Ethiopia among selected clusters of household 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 the following major points.

  1. The prevalence of acute malnutrition based on weight-for-height z-scores was shown at different rates. 11.2% of them were classified as global acute malnutrition (GAM), 9.8 % of them were moderate and 1.4 % of children were severe acute malnutrition (SAM). The crude mortality rate and the under-five children mortality were 0.04 and 0.2 deaths per death/10,000/day.
  2. About 35 % of the children suffered from diarrhea, 32 % from cough (ARI), and 14.6 % from fever. The percentage of children vaccinated against measles by card, TB (BCG) by scar, and who received vitamin A in the last 6 months were 16.5 %, 62.0 %, and 3.9 % of the respondents respectively.
