Addressing Micronutrient Deficiencies Among Women and Girls in Humanitarian Settings

Chronic food insecurity leads to micronutrient malnutrition in women and their babies which in humanitarian contexts is further exacerbated as antenatal, postnatal, and obstetric care services are disrupted. The disproportionate impact of humanitarian crises on women and girls has potential consequences for future generations. Monitoring the nutrition status of women and girls is critical to inform and guide targeted nutrition interventions in both development and humanitarian contexts. Agencies working in humanitarian settings need clear, harmonized policies and guidelines for women and girls regarding micronutrient interventions.
