The Food and Nutrition Technical Assistance II Project (FANTA-2) would like to announce the Interagency Review of Selective Feeding Programs in South, North and West Darfur States, Sudan March 8 - April 10, 2008. Selective feeding programs to treat acute malnutrition have been operating in Greater Darfur for four years. Yet the region's continuing complex emergency and extreme insecurity, as well as the current political crisis, threaten program implementation, coverage and sustainability, while the population's lack of access to food, water, health services and sanitation increases malnutrition and threatens program outcomes. This review assesses the quality, efficacy and effectiveness of Darfur's selective feeding programs, and provides evidence-based recommendations for improvement through activities such as training technical support and advocacy. The review covers selective feeding programs and services for both center-based and community-based management of acute malnutrition. The joint review was conducted by FANTA, the United Nations Children's Fund and the World Food Program in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Health and the South, North and West Darfur State Ministries of Health. Funding was provided by the United States Agency for International Development's Office of Health, Infectious Disease and Nutrition of the Bureau for Global Health and the Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance of the Bureau for Democracy, Conflict and Humanitarian Assistance. The review can be downloaded at FANTA-2's website http://www.fantaproject.org/publications/sudan_feeding2009.shtml.
