GTAM Conversations on how programmes are adapting in light of COVID-19: Implementing the Family MUAC approach in Gambella, Ethiopia

By Global Technical Assistance Mechanism for Nutrition (GTAM) on 8 July 2020

As the COVID response shifts and people are wanting to understand more how programmes are being adapted, ENN, as part of its work within the GTAM mechanism, has been reflecting on how best to share such information and capture stories from country level responses. Reflecting on the fact that everyone’s time is stretched at the moment, we realise that opportunities to document such adaptations (and for targeted audience members to have time to read and reflect on such documentation) are very limited. As a result, we are putting together a series of ‘connecting conversations’ in which programmers can reflect broadly what approaches they are currently taking- what is working well and what have the challenges been along the way (very much taking into account that we are all taking a ‘learning by doing’ approach to current programme shifts) so that others can hear and learn from such experiences.

Following on from the conversation with Anley, we speak to  Hatty Barthorp (Global Nutrition Advisor), Ritu Rana (Nutrition Research Advisor) and Mary T Murphy (Refugee Programme Manager) from GOAL on their experiences of implementing the FamilyMUAC approach and adapting in light of COVID-19 in the Gambella region of Ethiopia, a refugee context.
