Badghis IDPs Rapid SMART Survey Report_May 2019

Subject/Objective: 
The main objective of the surveys was to assess the current nutrition situation among children 0-59 months of age and Pregnant and Lactating Women (PLW) in Qala-e-Naw IDP Camps of Badghis province and provide key recommendations.
Methodology: 
The surveys applied a two-stage cluster sampling using the SMART methodology based on probability proportional to population size (PPS). Stage one sampling involved the sampling of the clusters to be included in the survey while the second stage sampling involved the selection of the households from the sampled clusters. The smallest geographical unit in Qala-e-Naw IDP Camps i.e. a Chief/Malik defined a cluster. A total of 866 children aged 6-59 months (418 from segment A and 448 children from segment B) were assessed.
Key findings: 
Prevalence of GAM in segment A was 7.5% (5.6 - 10.0 95% C.I.), whereas SAM was 1.9% (1.0 - 3.9 95% C.I.). GAM among households in segment B was 8.3% (5.8 - 11.8 95% C.I.), and SAM was found to be 1.6 % (0.6 - 4.1 95% C.I.). No oedema case was observed during the assessment in both segments.
