Job Title: Nutritionist
This project aims at meeting the immediate food needs of the IDP and host population of three LGAs of Yobe state by bridging the food gap that they are facing as a consequence of the displacement. The target population will be supported in achieving/maintaining their minimum kilo caloric requirements in order not to compromise their health and nutritional status, which is essential to engage in early recovery activities once the situation normalizes.
The project aims as well at sensitizing women and their communities on Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF) and Pregnant and Lactating Women (PLW) on nutrition and feeding practices, while referring identified MAM and SAM cases among children <5 and PLW to the existing services. A mere food distribution, not accompanied by an adequate sensitization on feeding practices, breastfeeding and maternal nutrition, in fact, might fail to prevent malnutrition in children, compromising their future well being and development.
- Assist in the management/supervision/monitoring of IYCF (Infant Young Child Feeding) activities
- Contribute to the development of IYCF messages and IEC material for nutrition campaign, tailored to local needs.
- Develop the tools for the Nutrition KAP survey to be rolled out at the beginning and end of the project.
