Nutrition Causal Analysis -Link NCA- Tapoa, Burkina Faso 2013

Since 2009, Action Against Hunger is collecting quantitative data in the province of Tapoa through studies such as the SMART study (nutritional status), the KAP survey (knowledge, attitude and practices) and HEA survey (household economy). In addition, in 2011, a nutrition surveillance system was implemented (monthly data collection from followed households, Listening Post).The results of the Link NCA highlighted that the peak of diarrhoeal diseases before the hunger gap was a really important contributor to the seasonality of wasting in the province.
