Nutrition Module: 13. Nutrition Information System

About this free course

Transforming the nutrition information system
Currently, asking for nutrition information from a woreda official leads to a paper-chase given the amount of report forms collated. This comprehensive vision for the NIS is to inform understanding of the nutritional situation with respect to chronic and newly occurring problems, as well as the causes of these problems, and how these change over time in order to help in decision-making at all levels. Ethiopia has introduced a child survival score card in an effort to reduce child mortality. An example where this could be used is in chronically food insecure areas supported by the Productive Safety Net Programme PSNP where risk financing mechanisms exist to address new chronic or temporary food insecurity. These routine systems are the monitoring backbone of the NNP, which — at least theoretically — can be combined to inform timely warning and be shared with other sectors. At the moment, available data from routine sources are not adequately linked to information use. For further information, take a look at our frequently asked questions which may give you the support you need.

Inclusion of routine nutrition data in the NIS and the early warning system


:-) I find this product very helpful when controlling my appetite. I work long shifts - 12-14 hour days. I pack my 6 pack lunch pail and try to time taking garcinia cambogia at meal 2 and 4. The time in between meals with this product is a bit longer compared to the past when I found myself dipping to my next meal after an hour and a half :) I absolutely love this supplement because for me, it did everything that it claimed to do. I've been taking it steadily for only about two weeks now and combined with a pretty good workout routine and diet, I've already lost 5 pounds.
