3. Livelihood Provisioning

Purpose: To provide food and meet other essential needs for households to maintain nutritional levels and save lives (relief)

Explanation: Interventions usually entail food and health care for people during an emergency (short term) or people who are chronically vulnerable (long term). Targeted food and health activities are critical and, whenever possible, food should be combined with promotion and/or protection interventions, to phase out any food transfers. In relief situations where people have been displaced from their homes (refugees and internally displaced populations who live in camps) interventions may include nutrition, health, HIV/AIDS, and family planning education programs. For chronically vulnerable populations, a community-based mother-child program (MCH) provides food for the most vulnerable families.
