Webinar: Improving Quality of Nutrition Services for Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health Care
Published on March 17, 2022
Join the Network for Improving Quality of Care for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (MNCH) and the Child Health Task Force’s Quality of Care subgroup for a webinar to review the nutrition-specific components of the WHO standards for improving the quality of facility-based MNCH care. The Network and associated WHO standards for improving the quality of maternal and newborn care, care of children and young adolescents, and care of small and sick newborns offer an important platform for improving nutrition care as an integral component of high-quality MNCH services.
This webinar will feature a technical brief recently published by MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership that highlights opportunities to apply these standards to improve MNCH nutrition services. The webinar will also include a presentation on nutrition quality of care activities in Ethiopia by representatives of the Ethiopian Ministry of Health and the USAID Growth through Nutrition project.
