One in Six tells the story of Community-based Therapeutic Care (CTC), an innovative approach to dealing with severe hunger and malnutrition in developing countries. CTC is revolutionising the early detection of malnutrition and treatment. In the process of doing this it’s also empowering families, local communities, government institutions and even local economies.
CTC, pioneered by NGO Valid International and jointly developed and promoted by Concern Worldwide, is rapidly becoming accepted as the preferred feeding intervention for malnutrition. It is now implemented in over 15 countries by Concern and other emergency and development agencies in Africa and Asia.
The documentary, filmed in Africa, Switzerland and Ireland was produced by Frontier Film. It explores the ways in which the kind of innovative thinking behind CTC can be used to bridge the gap between emergency and development.
A human right
One in Six – the title referring to the scourge of hunger that affects one in six people across the world – also features leading figures in international aid discussing the fight against global hunger. CEO of Concern, Tom Arnold, argues that despite the current global economic crises, it must be stressed that nutrition and food access is a human right.
