About this work

Description

Prevention of malnutrition: nutrition education This community health worker in rural Jamaica is showing a mother a leaflet promoting good nutrition and explaining what it says. Nutrition information can be shared in many ways; these include person-to-person (as shown), local or 'folk' media (eg. theatre), printed materials such as posters and leaflets, and mass media. Individual counselling is effective but very time-consuming. Home visits by trained health workers are particularly important in remote areas where it is difficult for women to attend clinics.
