The changing nature of humanitarian crises has placed high expectations on the aid system, which is now called on to simultaneously address multiple issues, sectors, and types of vulnerability. This is especially true in protracted crises where practitioners must strike a balance between known, evidence-based interventions, and those that address the longer-term public health and WASH needs over a prolonged period of time.

Despite great progress, undernutrition rates in Ethiopia remain poor. The key child indicators of stunting, wasting and underweight are at unacceptably high levels nationwide. The key child malnutrition causes in Ethiopia are poor feeding practices (few children eat nutrient-dense vegetables and fruit or animal source foods), suboptimal hygiene and sanitation in the household and community, as well as poverty, food insecurity and gender dynamics.
