Abstract
The civil wars in Sudan have resulted in the displacement of roughly 60,000 people in the White Nile State. Internally displaced people (IDP) in Kosti, Sudan face food and nutrition insecurity, as well as poor health and environmental conditions, which are compounded by economic hardships. The data used in this study is from the ADRA/Sudan Kosti Food Security Initiative Baseline Survey. The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) planned to carry out a nutrition and health intervention program targeted at the IDP in the Kosti region of Sudan. The aim of the program was to enhance health and nutritional conditions by improving primary health care, supplemental feeding, water security, and sanitation. The statistical analysis reported here focused on the health and nutrition conditions of children aged 6 to 24 months and the determinants of these conditions.
