Nayapara Refugee Camp is a government-sponsored Rohingya refugee camp established in 1992 in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. Despite the expansion of multi-sectoral humanitarian support over past years, undernutrition in registered camps remains a public health concern and the levels of malnutrition have been above the UNHCR standards for refugee camps (GAM> 10%).   During the Link NCA quantitative survey, the prevalence of global acute malnutrition (GAM) was estimated at 13.3%. The prevalence of global chronic malnutrition (GCM) was estimated to be 39.0% and 34.1% of children were underweight.   Out of 19 risk factors, believed to have an impact on the incidence of undernutrition in the study zone, three (3) risk factors were identified as having a major impact, namely:
  • environmental and food hygiene,
  • heavy workload of women and
  • inadequate childcare and/or infant and young child feeding practices.
