    Nutritional Assessement in Districts of Kien Svay and Lvea Em, Kandal Province This study was conducted by Church World Service (CWS)as a way of obtaining accurate baseline data on nutritional status in two districts of Kandal province, Kien Svay and Lvei Em. The results provide an interesting picture. While nowadays Kandal (and in particular Kien Svay) is often being portrayed as a non-priority area for poverty reduction interventions, due to its proximity to the capital Phnom Penh and to the Mekong and Bassac rivers, there are certainly pockets where levels of distress and malnutrition are alarming. About seventy percent of children under five suffer from acute respiratory infections, and almost fifty percent of these children were reported to have suffered from diarrhea in the week preceding the interview with the mothers. Stunting and underweight figures were high, though not so high as in some other parts of Cambodia. However,...... CWS.pdf

    Bellagio Meeting on Vitamin A Deficiency and Childhood Mortility This paper describes Save the Children Fund-UK's Food Economy Approach to analysing household food security, adopted by the organization in the early 1990s. The paper details the way in which the access of individual households to food, both in `normal' and `bad' years, is identified and quantified. The paper examines the conceptual background to the model, asking "what is the food economy approach?", "what is it used for?", "how does it work?" and "who does what?". It goes on to detail the development of the `baseline picture',how different families in a particular food economy area normally obtain food and non-food income. Information gathering, quantification and calculation methodologies are discussed with the aid of pie-charts and tables. Three case studies examine the application of the approach in southern Sudan, northern Kenya and Rwanda. NUT-006.pdf

    Findings from the HKI Baseline Survey in Takeo Province, Cambodia, Part 1: Food Consumption Questionnaire February 1997 The HKI Food Frequency Questionnaire was administered in July and August 1996 to 480 caretakers of preschool children (12-59 months old) in randomly selected households in 16 randomly selected communities in Samrong District and Tram Kak District in the Province of Takeo. Approximately the same number of girls and boys were selected. More five year olds were included in the survey than expected, possibly because of age misclassification. Almost all of the caretakers interviewed with the children's mother. The purpose of this questionnaire was to evaluate (i) whether or not the consumption of vitamin A-rich foods was adequate, (ii) which vitamin A-rich foods are being consumed and with what frequency in order to inform the nutrition communications strategy, (iii) key washing behaviors that transmit diarrheal pathogens and trachoma, and (iv) how soon infants are introduced to vitamin A-rich colostrum after birth.

    INFLUENCE OF MICRONUTRIENTS SUPPLEMENTATIONIN MORTALITY, MORBIDITY AND GROWTH PATTERN IN RURAL CAMBODIAN INFANTS IN THE FIRST 2 YEARS OF LIFE This study is conducted in 9 rural villages with low socio-economic status in the district of Tuk Phos, Kompong Chhnang province, Cambodia. Each village has been randomly selected between those who have a population of more than 1000 people.
    Tuk Phos is a poor, rural area, around 90 Km northwest of Phnom Penh. CESVI has been working in the province since 1996 (water and sanitation) and on health projects since 2001. Good relationship with PHD, OD1 and the HCs of Tuk Phos give us the confidence of a good working cooperation and relationship, also on this project.
    The study has been submitted to the Cambodian Ethical Committee.
    Written consent of a parent or a legal guardian will be obtained, according to the guidelines of the Committee for health research in Cambodia (see annex).
    People living in the area, are farmers, predominantly rice producers.
    The diet of the infant is typical of rural Cambodians: "bobor", a rice porridge with salt and sugar, while animal production consumption is very low.

    June 2010 Public Scaling Up Nutrition A FRAMEWORK FOR ACTION A FRAMEWORK FOR ACTION In January 2008 The Lancet—one of the world's most highly respected medical journals— issued a special five-part series on nutrition.1 This series filled a longstanding gap by marshalling systematic evidence of the impact of undernutrition on infant and child mortality and its largely irreversible long term effects on health and on cognitive and physical development. It also demonstrated the availability of proven interventions that could address these problems and save millions of lives. The Lancet set of interventions focused on the "window of opportunity" from minus 9 to 24 months (i.e. from pregnancy to two years old) for high impact in reducing death and disease and avoiding irreversible harm. Other studies drawing on a similar set of interventions, have demonstrated very high costeffectiveness, with high returns to cognitive development, individual earnings and economic growth.

    22 04 11 United Nations System • Standing Committee on Nutrition 6th Report On The World Nutrition Situation The Sixth report on the world nutrition situation focuses on "Progress in Nutrition" and confi rms that there has been notable progress in the reduction of undernutrition in some countries. Control of iodine defi ciency, for example, is a success story in progress. Vitamin A defi ciency is gradually being controlled either when measured by serum retinol levels or clinical signs of the defi ciency. The reader will also fi nd out what the trends are for stunting and underweight and how these trends differ geographically. However, this report clearly delivers the message that despite progress, quick acceleration of efforts is needed for bringing actions to scale. SCN_report_6th_Report.pdf
