Furthermore, what works in the context of care should be identified and the context variables implementation. Hence, based on the analysis of LoBiondo-Wood and Haber (2013), conducting periodic EBP training and encouraging mentorship, especially by those nurses who have vast experience in the evidence-based practices should be prioritized. This will ensure EBP and nursing other approaches remain central to the interdisciplinary
A collaborative program requires commitment from all parts involved. 3. The teacher-librarian can provide the resources and instructional support that a teacher needs to implement the curriculum. Why did you select each of these as a priority? How can these driving forces be strengthened?
The resilience analysis of a household is delimited to food availability, food access, utilization and stability since the aim of food security program interventions of Ethiopia is to satisfy the requirements of these targets (MoA, 2014; MoARD, 2009). According to the official reports, the major interventions of the program have direct implication to the four
Out of all kids worldwide, one in four are stunted, and a staggering ¾ of these live in just the sub-saharan region of Africa(Gates). Another effect of malnutrition is underdevelopment in the body and brain. Both of these effects can contribute to physical issues and low energy levels which can make it difficult to plant, farm, or really have any job. The reason malnutrition is such a serious problem that often goes unnoticed is because one can be getting a good amount of food and still become malnourished. Many kids may be getting enough food so they they don’t die, or don’t necessarily even feel hungry, but still become malnourished and experience effects like stunted growth, reduced energy, and underdevelopment.
The advantages of the topic of malnutrition is spreading awareness and knowledge about the topic. According to the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition, there are five solutions to help solve or prevent malnutrition The first solution is micronutrient supplements. The aim would be to eliminate deficinises by using these alternative sources for nutrients. The second solution is deworming. Intestinal worms are one of the most common diseases in poor countries.
6. Results: Findings of previous research & studies Findings: Challenges affecting household ability to be food secure: Poverty, unemployment, inequality and food security are integrally linked. Hunger is strongly prevalent in households with little or no income. The majority KZN‟s poor are reliant on incomes to access food. However, the unprecedented levels of unemployment in South Africa combined with large number of “working poor” makes achieving food security challenging.
Increased malnutrition is caused by poor diversification of diets such as relying too much on starchy staples. Thus, the consumption of a variety of foods is important for positive health. Malnutrition can be reduced by the consumption of diets having animal sources, vitamin-rich fruits and vegetables as well as nutrient-rich legumes (Arimond and Ruel, 2004; Thompson and Amoroso, 2011). According to the FAO, IFAD and WFP, (2015) about 800 million people do not have sufficient access to calories. A low intake of vitamins and minerals causes about 2 billion people all over the world to suffer from micronutrient malnutrition (IFPRI, 2014).
Many older adults may be under nourished. Poor nutritional status and malnutrition in the elderly population are important areas of concern. Malnutrition and unintentional weight loss contribute to a progressive decline in health, reduced physical and cognitive functional status, increased utilization of health care services, premature institutionalization, and increased mortality. Many health care practitioners inadequately address the multifactor issues that contribute to nutritional risk and to malnutrition. A common assumption is that nutritional deficiencies are an inevitable consequence of aging and disease and that intervention for these deficiencies are only minimally effective.
The government above all must provide an enabling environment that will make all stakeholders participate and contribute their own quota through imbibing social entrepreneurship initiative so that food security can be attained, maintained and sustained. CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATION The paper concludes that the problem of food insecurity in Nigeria can be solved with collective efforts of the relevant stakeholders: international donors, government, professional institutions, banks, nongovernmental organisations, faith based institutions, schools, families, farmers, and media. It recommends the adoption of social
