Child malnutrition in Borno, Nigeria: Urgent humanitarian response needed

  • Since May, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has been witnessing an unprecedented influx of malnourished children to our nutrition centre in Maiduguri, Nigeria, suggesting an alarming nutritional crisis in Borno state.
  • An urgent scale up of the humanitarian response in Borno is needed in advance of the ‘hunger gap’ peak period, which could be much more severe than previous years if current trends continue.
  • The UK government, as a key donor in Nigeria, must scale up support.
