Community Dialogue Sessions in Vihiga County

March 3, 2014

Last week, on the 27th and 28th of February 2014,  the Health Challenges and Systems team working on the MIYCN (Maternal, Infant and Young Child Nutrition) project and the Policy Engagement and Communications team held a series of community dialogue sessions in Vihiga County of Western Kenya.
The MIYCN project is an intervention that involves personalized home-based counselling of pregnant women and mothers of infants on maternal nutrition and optimal infant and young child feeding practices. The intervention is delivered by Community Health Workers (CHWs), who are already part of the existing primary health care system.
