Project Completed

In collaboration with UNICEF, GroundWork has analyzed data from DHS and SMART surveys to document the nutritional trends in children and women, and to investigate the determinants of stunting, wasting, and anemia in Guinea. In addition, GroundWork has conducted extensive qualitative research on the impact of the Ebola outbreak on nutritional care during and after the outbreak for both affected and non-affected populations, with a particular focus on infant and young child feeding practices. This qualitative research has been conducted in both Guinea and Sierra Leone in collaboration with UNICEF (Guinea) and Focus1000 (Sierra Leone).
