Community Nutrition Action for Child Survival.

This publication is designed for use by managers of community-based nutrition programs. The training modules included in this manual were produced and field-tested by the Centre for Development and Population Activities (CEDPA) as a special project providing focused technical assistance and project support to CEDPA training graduates. CEDPA provides management training and technical assistance to managers of family planning, and health and development programs in the Third World. This training package is divided into three modules, each containing a series of units on specific but related topics. The units are divided into session plans, handouts, reference materials, and training exercises. The first part provides up-to-date information about the nutrition and health problems of women and young children. Its objective is to promote and enable trainees to manage six basic community nutrition activities: growth monitoring, breastfeeding, home and village food production, oral rehydration therapy, immunization, and family planning. Part two focuses on developing trainee skills in nutrition project planning, including selection of interventions, work planning, budgeting, and proposal writing. The final part is designed to assist trainees to develop plans and instruments for managing critical elements of community nutrition programs: i.e., training field workers and community volunteers; supervision of nutrition workers and community activities; and the monitoring and evaluating of service delivery activities.
