Guidance on phases
Phase III and IV
Definitions of different types of coverage are being developed. Admission rates should be analysed in order to identify if boys, girls, men, women are equally accessing nutrition services. If a group identified as potentially vulnerable, is not oriented to the nutrition centres, it is important to understand why this is (i.e. gender-based discrimination, mobility restrictions, etc.) and to take required actions.
