Post a reply: Ideas to prevent Mothers from starving their children in order to benefit from the nutritional treatment

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

Dear All, It seems that we have an additional problem in Somalia where several organisations have reported that mothers are starving their children in order to benefit from nutritionnal products and protection ration. Some teams have even reported the use of detergent ... We are trying of course to triangulate the information through registers (this will also require FGD) but as it happens already in several countries, we have some good reasons to believe it. Obviously, this requires a strong behavior change component (which will take a lot of time in a context like Somalia) and community mobilisation through the use of home visiting but I was wondering if any of you ever faced this kind of situation and if you know of any activities that could limit this type of behavior. Thanks for your help,
