The helper: Treating malnutrition in Ethiopia

Over 16,700 severely malnourished patients, mostly children, have been cared for so far in MSF programmes in Oromiya and SNNP regions of Ethiopia. Among them, 2,071 children suffering from medical complications were admitted to five stabilisation centres where they received 24-hour medical attention. Another 14,700 severely malnourished children have received nutritional treatment and food rations on an ambulatory basis in a network of 44 outpatient therapeutic programmes (OTP). Supplementary food rations made up of a corn and soja blend with oil and sugar have also been provided to 1,700 moderately malnourished children and their families.
