Report of a meeting to harmonise the criteria for monitoring and evaluation of the treatment of acute malnutrition in West and Central Africa

Author: Golden, M., Grellety, Y., Schwartz, H., Tchibindat, F.
Year: 2010
Resource type: Other

A workshop was convened in Dakar from November 30 to December 1, 2010 to harmonize the definitions and reporting formats of acutely malnourished patients so that accurate information can be readily collated and analyzed throughout the region. The expected results were: 1) A list of core indicators and their definitions have been agreed upon by the main nutrition stakeholders; 2) A template of weekly/monthly reporting form is available; 3) A consensus reached on the main critical issues of contention; and 4) Next steps for implementing the resolutions of the consensus statement. 
 
This meeting was convened to address, as far as possible, the divergences identified in the 
evaluation and reach harmonisation throughout the region on these points of divergence. The 
meeting included 56 senior participants from National Governments, agencies of the United Nations 
within the region and from their respective Headquarters, the major donors, the non-governmental 
humanitarian organisations and international experts on malnutrition (a list of participants are 
available in Annex 1). The workshop planning committee received financial and/or technical support 
from ACF, UNICEF WCARO, ECHO and DFID. The workshop facilitators were Professor Michael 
Golden and Dr Yvonne Grellety.
