Analysis of Stunting Reduction in Ethiopia

Project Completed

 
Over the past decade, Ethiopia has made huge strides in fighting malnutrition. Child stunting (a measure of chronic malnutrition) has shown considerable improvement, decreasing by approximately 14 percentage points since 2000. In order to accelerate the reduction in the prevalence of stunting and continue the improvement in the nutritional and health status of children in Ethiopia, GroundWork is undertaking an analysis of Ethiopia’s 2000, 2005, and 2011 Demographic and Health Surveys to assess the potential causes of stunting and reciprocally, reasons for improvement over the past decade.
