Annex 3


Figure outlining the assessment protocol for prevention of scurvy during the initiation and up to the establishment phases of an emergency feeding operation.

Note:

1. Home gardens should be established where and when feasible (-distribution of seeds and education.)

2. Nutrition education should be a component of every intervention

3. Normally unused foods that might be exploited (roots, leaves, wild fruit) should not be forgotten. They might be able to contribute substantially to vitamin C intake in particular periods in certain areas
