Literature review Malnutrition in childhood: Malnutrition is a serious public health problem and a pathological condition that results when a person’s diet contains inadequate amount of nutrients(1). Malnutrition refers both under nutrition and over nutrition. But in common usage the word malnutrition refers to under nutrition and protein energy malnutrition. Malnutrition is the leading cause of more than one third of all child death(2). Globally, malnutrition is the major risk factor for all common childhood illnesses, and it increases the chance of worsening the conditions (3) and increases the chance of dying too(4).
Biochemical and laboratory methods 4. Dietary evaluation methods The Importance of Nutritional Assessments include the following. • The nutritional assessments help us to identify individuals or populations that are at a risk of becoming Malnourished • They also help us understand and identify individuals or populations that are already malnourished • They help governments, Non-governmental organisations and other private sector players to identify community needs and be able to design or develop better health care programs for certain groups of people. • The nutritional assessments help us to measure the impact of the nutritional programs & different intervention by governments,
Introduction According to Fallon, Begun & Riley (2013), “Strategic planning is the process of developing strategies.” Furthermore, strategic planning is essential within any organization as it provides oversight and direction by prioritizing goals and objectives that coincide with the mission, vision, and values of the company. There are several different strategies for organizations to choose from to assist them in obtaining several of their goals, however, within this particular case study; Brett wants to learn more about MAPP. MAPP, also better known as Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships is a strategic planning process that improves public health services and outcomes within local communities (Fallon, Begun& Riley,
A good nurse shows great care for their patients trying to get them back to good health. So many neonatal nurses save babies lives by just being there for them and treating them everyday so they can become a healthy baby and go home to their family. These nurses keep these many babies alive, ones of which should have died the first day of entering this world. I think a lot of people take for granted the things that doctors and nurses do for a living. People do not realize their job is to give the best most humane care possible.
During the care of the obstetric (OB) patient throughout labor, delivery, and postpartum, obstetric departments work to provide safe outcomes for mothers and infants. To do so, nurses must be prepared to act upon any adverse event associated with increased maternal or neonatal morbidity or mortality. However, staff are challenged to implement evidence-based practice when these events occur so infrequently. This is especially challenging for nurses who are new to obstetric care and have little, if any, exposure to adverse scenarios or events. For these reasons, newly hired nurses who have less than 1-2 years’ experience in obstetrics nursing could benefit from a high-risk OB class that incorporates topics including postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) to assist in earlier recognition, response, and ultimately improved patient care.
According to UNFPA (The United Nations Population Fund) “A women’s chance of dying or becoming disabled during pregnancy and child birth is closely connected to her social and economic status, the norms and values for her culture and the geographic remoteness of her home”. It has also been found that poor and marginalized women are at the higher risk of maternal death as compared to aristocrate women. Hypertension, diabetes, respiratory problems, obesity and infections are some common health problems that occur during pregnancy or at the time of delivery. Maintaining Oral health /oral hygiene is also essential during pregnancy .Its proper care give benefit to both mother and foetus as well. However, there is a common misconception that it is not safe to obtain dental services while pregnancy that is a myth.
SAFE DELIVERY- According to WHO report, the delivery should be conducted by skilled doctors/ nurse/ auxiliary nurse midwife (ANM) birth attendance who have the skills to manage normal deliveries and recognize the onset of complications in hygienic conditions. POSTNATAL CARE- The postpartum period lasts to about 42 days beginning right after the baby is born. Women who received check-up during postpartum period is considered to have received postnatal care. All the three dependent variables are dummy variables (that is 1 = service is received, 0 = otherwise). Therefore, binary logistic regression is used to understand the determinants of maternal health care.

The accurate assessment of food intakes is an essential prerequisite in monitering the nutritional status of the population and specific subgroups, such as age and gender groups. Dietary intake assessments are an invaluable aid in investigating the links between diet and health. The reasons for collecting measures of dietary intake can be catogorised into three main headings: Public Health, Clinical, and Research. Dietary Assessment for Public Health is used to evaluate nutrition-based intervention programmes and to identify the nutrients being under or over consumed at a national or community level. Clinical Dietary Intake Assesments They are used worldwide to assess the health of populations.
Different services visited for our research in the Health Center 1. GYNAECOLOGY & OBSTETRICS 1. Labor Room Labor room is so small and squeezed unit providing care during delivery or childbirth so as to achieve safe motherhood, this under supervision of one midwife nurse. This facility also ensures the birth of healthy neonate and care of neonates which require special needs like premature neonates.Unfortenately most of time, they are transferred to Rwapara Hospital due to lack of proper medical facilities and transportation means . As consequences most of the life threatening complications occur during childbirth .Therefore; labor rooms should have the facilities or designed as an emergency unit’s .Within the unit mothers with special needs will be taken into consideration through the creation of dedicated zones 1.
