A great path to sustainably rebuild post-crisis Syria and improve the nutrition situation in Lebanon is by raising healthy generations from early life.

Malnutrition during the first 1000 days of life can have lifelong effects on a child’s development and constitute a window of opportunity to address nutritional deficiencies. In Lebanon, having the highest per capita concentration of refugees in the world, the nutritional status of children under-five and women of reproductive age is increasingly compromised by the protracted crisis. Up to date, there is a lack of studies assessing anemia and its associations with nutritional status, child feeding practices, mental health and household food insecurity in this context. This project is composed of two phases, a cross-sectional and an intervention study among mother/child pairs of Syrian refugees and their Lebanese host communities attending primary healthcare centers in Greater Beirut. The aim is to examine the underlying causes of anemia and to improve maternal and child nutrition using sustainable nutrition education approaches to fight hidden hunger in Lebanon and post-conflict Syria.
