Analysis of the CLP’s Nutritional monitoring database

Abstract

This report presents the results of the longitudinal and cross-sectional analyses of the nutritional status of the six CLP Phases. Nutritional status has been measured by maternal weight, Body Mass Index (BMI) and haemoglobin concentration and in children by height-for-age (HAZ), weight-for-age (WAZ) and weight-for-height (WHZ) and haemoglobin concentration. HAZ is a measure of chronic undernutrition (stunting) WHZ is a measure of acute undernutrition (wasting) and WAZ is a combination of both acute and chronic undernutrition (underweight).
