Fighting malnourishment in Cameroon: Germany pumps in €15 million to

On this day February 28, Germany and UNICEF have launched the second phase of the project named "S'attaquer à la malnutrition chez les enfants de moins de cinq ans dans les régions de l’Extrême-Nord, du Nord, de l’Adamaoua et de l’Est", in Yaoundé.

Germany which had provided €8 million (CFA5.24 billion) during the first phase which started in 2016 will disburse another  €15 million (CFA9.8 billion) this year to support the project till 2020.

“This contribution will help extend the activities to 68 health districts, 31 more than those covered during the first phase, to reach all the regions targeted by the project”, Germany explains.  

UNICEF explains that chronic malnutrition is a structural problem which has persisted for the last two decades in Cameroon. This form of malnutrition is often ignored because it is hardly noticeable. Among children aged 5, it is characterized by low height during growth.

According to the UNICEF, this problem is as a result of mothers been poorly nourished during  pregnancy coupled with  malnourishment during the development of the fœtus and during early childhood.
