I monitor and coach medical teams and community health volunteers on nutrition activities. I also support and work with social workers in health facilities.
A substantial number of cases of acute malnutrition are still being found in various communities where I work. However the situation has improved over the past few years.
The staff members of the health facilities have huge workloads and they do not have sufficient time to conduct adequate nutrition and hygiene education sessions. Therefore I frequently have to get involved with the work of some facilities during my field visits and when I am supervising.
I want to ensure that the nutritional status of malnourished individuals is improved.
