Finding the Cause of Child Malnutrition: a Community Handbook

Publication year: 

This community handbook is designed to help health workers address three questions: i) How do you measure community malnutrition? ii) What are the food problems in your community? iii) Which problems should you attack? A series of appendices describe various practical ways of measuring child development. Health workers are encouraged to analyse and act upon the various socio-economic causes of ill health. An extensive list of further information sources is provided, with little emphasis on methodology.

Interest groups: 
This handbook is intended for community health workers who have six or more years of education in English. Illustrations are provided from Zaire.
