The projects aims at reducing mortality caused by severe and chronic child malnutrition in three municipalities of Rural Bujumbura province. According to the last nutritional data, the province has high percentages of chronic malnutrition, over 50%, while the severe malnutrition percentage reaches 6,4%. GVC works to reduce such problems through direct healthcare interventions, like depistage activities, and through training for the personnel in charge of public health conservation (such as ASC agents or "Mamans Lumieres").
