We are Elrha, a force for change in the humanitarian community. The research and innovation we support equips the humanitarian community with the knowledge of what works, so people affected by crises get the right help when they need it most.
Our purpose is clear: to empower the humanitarian community to improve humanitarian response. We make this happen by supporting and championing the outcomes of robust research and proven innovations.

4.3.4 Summary

This review found that the majority of studies on nutrition interventions in these settings and populations were of moderate quality, and that these were largely confined to African settings. Further high quality studies are required in humanitarian crises given their unique contexts, particularly in other regions of the world than Africa, in order to be able to demonstrate a significant improvement in health outcomes as a result of nutritional interventions in settings and populations. There is substantial evidence on the effectiveness of nutrition interventions in stable and development contexts. Reviews of such studies are available on malnutrition, vitamin deficiencies – primarily anaemia – as well as general effects on standard anthropometric indicators.
