Lesotho - Nutrition Baseline Survey in Four Districts, January 2011

A cross-sectional survey was designed to provide reference data for monitoring the outcomes of the nutrition programme in the four districts of Thaba-Tseka, Mokhotlong, Qacha’s Nek in the mountains and Berea in the lowlands. The main objectives of the survey were:

  • To determine levels of household food security (FCS) and their stress as measured by the Coping Strategies Index.
  • To understand livelihoods and income and expenditure patterns of households.
  • To determine the contribution of gardens to household livelihoods and food security.
  • To determine nutritional status of people living with HIV and TB and their treatment adherence.
