The primary focus of Merlin program is primary health care and community based management of acute malnutrition (CMAM). The special emphasis is given to maternal and child health care. The program strategy includes establishment of static and mobile clinics in the IDP camps and unserved rural areas to ensure access to essential care and building local capacity through a community based outreach component and engage with ministry of health at state and locality in regards to collaboration, coordination and technical support supervision. The focus for 2010 will be to continue support for improved primary health and nutrition care provision in the selected locations, consolidating program quality, improve the community involvement in the program planning and implementation through a revised community based approaches, capacity building of national staffs and local health system by increased engagement with the MOH in regards to support, supervision, training and policy development.
