The purpose of ENA for SMART is to make nutrition assessments and mortality rate calculations in emergency situations as easy and reliable as possible. To achieve this it focuses on the most important indicators (anthropometric and mortality data), checks the plausibility of the entered data and gives out an automatic report. Since the software can not explain why children are malnourished or mortality rates are high the results of the survey have to be complemented with other information (e.g. from the Food Security part of ENA or discussions with key informants, collection of this additional information on the household level is usually not very helpful and has a high risk to reduce the quality of the anthropometric and mortality data).

To install ENA click on the following file ena2011.exe (Version 2011, April 21st 2015 or Version 2011, Nov 24th 2012). After installation you will find an icon for the program on the desktop. The default installation directory is c:\ena2011 but if this should be any problem please try d:\ena2011, the user directory or the installation on a USB stick. Alternatively you can also download the following ZIP file and after unzipping the files in a new directory run the ena.exe file which is in this ZIP file.

The program is thoroughly tested and the z-score calculation identical to other programs (EpiInfo, WHO Anthro) but if you should encounter any problems or if you have suggestions for further improvements please send an e-mail to copied to
