IPC ACUTE MALNUTRITION ANALYSIS REPORT (FROM MARCH 2023 – JANUARY 2024) - September 2023

The latest acute malnutrition (AMN) analysis by the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) has found that 2.14 million children in parts of Pakistan are suffering acute malnutrition. The analysis conducted in 32 districts of Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Sindh provinces indicates that 23 districts are classified in IPC AMN Phase 4 (Critical), five districts in IPC AMN Phase 3 (Serious) and four districts in IPC AMN Phase 2 (Alert).

The districts classified in IPC Phase 4 (Critical) are: Jafferabad, Kachhi, Kalat, Kharan, Killa Abdullah, Kila Saifullah, Loralai, Naseerabad, Nushki, Pishin, Quetta, Washuk, Dadu, Jacobabad, Jamshoro, Khairpur, Mirpur Khas, Naushehro Feroz, Kambar Shahdad kot, Sanghar, Tharparkar, Thatta and Umerkot. The districts of Khuzdar, Matiari, Sukkur, Kohistan Lower and Nowshera are classified in IPC Phase 3 (Serious), whereas Upper Dir, Swat, Malakand and Charsadda appear in IPC Phase 2 (Alert).

During the projected period (October 2023 - January 2024), the AMN Phase classification of Upper Dir and Swat is expected to deteriorate from IPC Phase 2 (Alert), to IPC Phase 3 (Serious), whereas Matiari and Kohistan Lower’s situations are also likely to deteriorate from IPC Phase 3 (Serious) to IPC Phase 4 (Critical). Compared to the current analysis period, the Phase classification for the remaining districts is expected to remain unchanged during the projected period, regardless of seasonal fluctuations in acute malnutrition rates (whether they improve, worsen, or stay the same)
