Nutrition Screening Benicheikh Borno State Nigeria

Treating malnourished children in Beni Shiekh, Nigeria

Child malnutrition is one of the main problems in Nigeria's Borno state, where MSF is running nutrition programmes. Thousands of people in the northeast of the country have been displaced by violence and conflict. In Beni Shiekh alone, around 30 to 40 per cent of the population (roughly 33,000 people) is displaced, but the figure could be much higher.
