Africare identified the need to review the relationship of one of its key measurements of food security, the Months of Adequate Household Food Provisioning (MAHFP), across different country programs, both in absolute terms and as compared to other impact indicators. The ICB's focus on comparing MAHFP with other indicators and measures of food security has led to the analysis presented in this paper, which compares the trends detected by Africare's MAHFP measure with those detected by Africare's Food Security Community Capacity Index (FSCCI) and standard anthropometric measurements, such as stunting and feeding practices of children.
