Annual Report Highlights
FANTA is working at the national and regional level in Ethiopia alongside the Federal Ministry of Health and Regional Health Bureaus to ramp up national access to nutrition services, including strengthening the integration of nutrition assessment, counseling, and support (NACS) into HIV care and treatment.
Reducing malnutrition globally depends on reducing malnutrition in Asia, which has the highest prevalence and greatest number of children under 5 years of age who are stunted, wasted, and underweight in the world. Given the vast scale of malnutrition in Asia, FANTA conducted a review of the nutrition situation in 11 countries in Asia.
Achievements in Vietnam to Strengthen Nutrition and HIV Services
As a result of FANTA’s work over 7 years in Vietnam to strengthen health care services and reduce malnutrition for people living with HIV, the Government of Vietnam developed national guidelines, trained health care workers, provided equipment and supplies, and provided treatment for malnourished people living with HIV and HIV-exposed children.
