Community Health and Nutrition Training Course - Upskill Development Institute

22nd to 26th February 2021

Online

Introduction In most developing countries the majority of the population-the rural population especially-does not receive even the most basic health care or any nutritional advice. Malnutrition usually stems from poverty and from ignorance of what are the right foods to eat. At the same time it increases the problems caused by the lack of health care because it weakens the body's defense against disease. This training is aimed at building the skills of the participants to efficiently offer nutrition services to communities, linking them to care and referral. This is expected to empower communities to make informed choices to ensure healthy eating and lifestyles.

Who should attend This course is aimed at health managers, community health workers, community health volunteers, nutritionists, development practitioners and other health professionals who are responsible for enhancing community health.
