Throughout 2018, WFP continued to support the Government’s social protection systems for improved food security and nutrition among the most vulnerable groups by providing food assistance and capacity strengthening activities. For the first time, WFP assisted elderly people – a very vulnerable group progressively on the rise in the country – with specialised nutritious foods, in
addition to its traditional support. Given the positive results, further support for this vulnerable group will be explored in the coming year. Additionally, WFP contributed to positioning nutritional education as a key topic in the school system by supporting the Nutritional Education Strategy led by the Ministry of Education. This strategy will provide key inputs for developing a behavioural-change strategy on nutrition to prevent micronutrient deficiencies and obesity.
