Project / Programme Title
Child Health and Nutrition Programme
Brief Project Description
The programme will be implemented by the Ministry of Health and its provincial directorates within the framework of the Health SWAp. It will support interventions to address the underlying causes of the high mortality and poor nutritional status of children, including inadequate access for the most vulnerable children to integrated child health and nutritional services and gaps in health policy, institutional capacity and quality of service. The programme will contribute to the progressive attainment of the health related Millennium Development Goal targets through the implementation of the Accelerated Child Survival and Development (ACSD), focusing on health systems-strengthening and support to service delivery at national and sub-national levels. The programme consists of four complementary components. Component 1: Policy Development. Focuses on the provision of technical assistance in the development of child health and nutrition related policies, plans, guidelines, standards and norms, as well as support for capacity development. It will also support the strengthening of the health information management system and budget analysis. The key expected result under this component is: - Enhanced national capacity at all levels in formulation of policies, strategies, protocols and plans related to maternal, neo-natal and child survival and development, including nutrition, school health/nutrition, emergency and HIV/AIDS. Component 2: Child Health. Supports the expansion of an integrated neonatal and child health approach, including the Integrated Management of Neonatal and Childhood Illness (IMNCI) at community and health facility levels, immunisation in hard-to-reach districts, and malaria prevention and treatment, focusing on orphaned and vulnerable children and pregnant women. Maternal health will be integrated into the IMNCI/Community IMNCI approach and will also be addressed through PMTCT programmes. This component will also support the health component of the Child Friendly School initiative. The key expected results under this component are: - At least 60 per cent of vulnerable population groups (HIV positive children under five, pregnant women and OVC) receiving prompt malaria treatment and being protected from malaria, in six provinces; - Capacities of health workers to implement IMNCI/C-IMNCI strengthened in 80 per cent of health facilities, in targeted districts; - All 45 low EPI coverage districts annually producing quality micro-plans, which adequately address the needs of hard-to-reach children; - All districts in the country are implementing enhanced outreach activities (integrated package of services, including immunisation) through mobile brigades at least twice a year; - All hospitals in Cabo Delgado province have qualified staff trained on EmOC; and - Decentralised government capacity for integrated district planning, M&E and service delivery for child survival and development strengthened in the seven model districts. Component 3: Nutrition. This component will focus on the prevention of malnutrition throughout the lifecycle: infant, young child, girls and women of childbearing age, and pregnant women. It will support the provision of training on the basic nutrition package at both central and sub-national levels, including the provision of operational support to outreach and community-based activities. It will also support the promotion of salt iodisation through social marketing and women¡¦s groups. The key expected results under this component are: - At least 500 health facilities in all the provinces implemented the Basic Nutrition Package (including infant and young child feeding (IYCF), micronutrients, deworming, growth monitoring and maternal nutrition); - Basic Nutrition Package for communities scaled from 6 to 90 districts through health sector activities and community mobilisation/participation; and - Quality selective feeding interventions (therapeutic feeding, routine supplementary feeding, and emergency supplementary feeding, as required) scaled from 34 to 105 sites (therapeutic feeding), from 0 to 105 (supplementary feeding). Component 4: HIV/AIDS. This component will contribute to two of the four ¡§Ps¡¨ of the Children and AIDS campaign (PMTCT and paediatric AIDS). It will provide technical and operational support to ensure the scaled-up provision of quality PMTCT and paediatric AIDS treatment services at health facilities level, while at the same time support the provision of services at community levels such as positive mothers groups and child-friendly home based care. The key expected results under this component are: - 45 new sites + 30 already existing offer quality PMTCT integrated services; - Knowledge, awareness and motivation about PMTCT increased in communities surrounding all PMTCT service sites; and - 45 new and 23 existing ARV treatment sites deliver a quality standard integrated package for children, including screening, VCT, referral, prophylaxis, OI treatment, nutritional support, home-based care.
