Since the events of August 2017 in Northern Rakhine state, which led to the displacement of over 700,000 refugees into Bangladesh, ACF Myanmar’s Rakhine base has been growing consistently, continuing/developing activities through several programs in Nutrition and Mental Health and Care Practices; Food Security and Livelihoods; WASH and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR); and Health System Strengthening (HSS).
In 2019, ACF Rakhine base will continue to operate a life-saving intervention in nutrition, care practices and psychosocial support for IDPs and host communities. This emergency program comprises a Therapeutic Feeding Program (TFP) implemented in ACF-run Out-patient Therapeutic Program centers (OTPs), and a Supplementary Feeding Program (SFP) in MoH Rural Health Centers. It is implemented in both Central and Northern Rakhine state (CRS and NRS), through the base of Sittwe and sub-base of Maungdaw.
In July 2019 ACF Myanmar started the implementation of an integrated Nutrition/FSL/WASH/DRR program in CRS (Sittwe and Minbya townships), as part of a 36 months Europe Aid-funded project, in consortium with the Danish Refugee Council. The program includes a range of activities in food production, income-generation, community mobilization and engagement, WASH and DRR; and are combined with a Behavior Change strategy on health, hygiene, nutrition and Infant and Youth Child Feeding (IYCF). In parallel, another BMZ-funded project involving Nutrition and IYCF, Livelihoods and WaSH/DRR components started in September 2018 for a duration of 36 months, in consortium with Save the Children International, in CRS (Sittwe and Minbya townships).
In 2019, ACF Rakhine will begin a new project in partnership with Humanity and Inclusion (HI). This aims to build the capacity of government workers to provide community based nutrition services. It also aims to increase access to rehabilitative services for malnourished children with disabilities and build the capacity of government and community based organisations to identify, intervene and where necessary refer families with mental health and care practice needs in the community.
