Horn and Eastern Africa Regional Report 2019
The Horn and Eastern Africa Regional Office (HEARO) oversees Action Against Hunger’s operations in the region, providing strategic and operational support to country programmes. HEARO’s approach is based on leveraging new opportunities at regional level, as we strengthen capacity at the local level. The regional office supports six countries to deliver the global vision: Kenya, South Sudan, Somalia, Uganda, Tanzania and Ethiopia. HEARO draws legitimacy and credibility from our operations in the field, from technical research as well as from the organisation’s direct work with communities affected by nutrition insecurity and child under nutrition in emergency, recovery and development contexts. Through our advocacy work, we apply valuable technical expertise and field knowledge to inform evidence-based policies to tackle malnutrition.
