Action Against Hunger has been working in Liberia since 1991 with the purpose to respond to the needs of the
most vulnerable people, at first during the emergencies and then in a more development setting, until the 2014
Ebola outbreak and the emergency it generated in the country. AAH interventions in Liberia aim at improving the
nutrition security of the population, with particular focus on children under-five and pregnant and lactating women.
AAH aims at doing so by implementing multi-sectorial programs, which encompass direct nutrition intervention
and prevention activities to address the underlining causes of undernutrition, i.e. poor health, food insecurity, poor
care practices, and poor access to water and sanitation. AAH also has an integrated advocacy strategy in the mission
that cuts across all the sectors.
