AFG_Herat IDPs_ Rapid SMART Report

Subject/Objective: 
The main objective of the surveys was to assess the current nutrition situation among children 6-59 months of age, Pregnant, and Lactating Women (PLW) in Herat IDPs Camps of Herat province and provide key recommendations.
Methodology: 
The surveys applied a two-stage cluster sampling using the Rapid SMART methodology based on probability proportional to population size (PPS). Stage one sampling involved the sampling of the clusters included in the survey while the second stage sampling involved the selection of the households from the sampled clusters. The smallest geographical unit in Herat IDPs Camps i.e. a Chief/Malik defined a cluster. A total of 1,130 children aged 6-59 months (615 from Shaidayee camp and 515 children from Shahrak Sabz and Shaharak SatarPahlawan) were assessed.
Key findings: 
The prevalence of GAM and SAM in the IDP camps are presented in Tables 5-4 and 5-5. Prevalence of GAM in Shaidayee was 8.7% (6.5–11.6 95% C.I.), whereas SAM was 1.6% (0.9-3.1 95% C.I.). GAM prevalence in Shahrak sabz & Shahrak Setar Pahlawan) was 7.1% (4.9-10.3 95% C.I.), and SAM was found to be 1.0% (0.4-2.2 95% C.I.).
