CLP Annual Nutritional Survey Report, 2008-2014

Chars Livelihoods Programme works with extreme poor households living on island chars in north western Bangladesh


Chars Livelihoods Programme (CLP) has been conducting annual longitudinal nutritional surveys since 2008 and measured anthropometry (weight and height) and haemoglobin concentration (as an indicator of iron deficiency anaemia) of mothers and children below 5 years of age across 10 Districts, 28 Upazilas, 61 Unions and 144 island chars.

This report uses longitudinal and cross-sectional analyses of the nutritional status of the 10 cohorts. The nutritional status has been measured by Body Mass Index (BMI) and anaemia status (haemoglobin concentration) in mothers and by height-for-age (HAZ), weight-for-age (WAZ) and weight-for-height (WHZ) and haemoglobin concentration in children. The current report includes the most recent data, from 2014.
