Other Household Health Survey [hh/hea]
The UNHCR Standardized Expanded Nutrition Surveys (SENS) provide regular nutrition data that plays a key role in delivering effective and timely interventions to ensure good nutritional outcomes among populations affected by forced displacement. This survey was conducted in the 3 camps and 2 reception areas for Malian refugees (Abala, Tabarbarey, Mangaïzé, Intikan and Tazalit) in Niger that includes 54,859 refugees (11,362 households). The survey was jointly conducted by UNHCR, the World Food Programme (WFP), UN Childrens Fund (UNICEF) and the Ministry of Health. Data collection in the Malian camps took place from May 30 to June 19, 2016 with the main objective of assessing the prevalence of global and severe acute malnutrition by age group and sex.
