Abstract

Presents a study that aims to examine Zimbabwe experience regarding UNICEF training package for scaling up skilled community infant and young child feeding counselors. In the context of improving nutrition in Zimbabwe and other developing countries, the need to build the capacity of community-based health workers (CBWs) is well recognized. The aims of this great educational material are to describe the Zimbabwe experience with using the UNICEF IYCF training package and to recommend its use in similar developing country settings. When the program was first implemented in Zimbabwe, 2,000 rural community counselors from 8 districts were trained over 5 months. In addition, they acknowledge Christiane Rudert, UNICEF, New York, for providing useful feedback and input to the first draft of this paper.
