SPRING Assesses Nutritional Needs in Post-Ebola Sierra Leone

From September 16 to October 2, 2015, SPRING conducted the fieldwork component of a nutrition needs assessment in Sierra Leone to contribute to post Ebola virus disease (EVD) response efforts. The SPRING team conducted interviews with agriculture and health service providers, community members, market vendors, and mothers. SPRING’s assessment focused on understanding key contributors to undernutrition and documenting the ways the EVD outbreak impacted agriculture, food, health, and nutrition services.
