Early cognitive development will be promoted through this program to treat malnourished children in rural Bangladeshi health clinics, improving the knowledge and skills of both mothers and field staff in early cognitive development. The anticipated outcome: improved language skills among children, as well as better mental and psychomotor development.
The project takes advantage of a time when kids and their parents are interacting with health clinics to provide more than just calories. The challenge is how to do it in a way that is feasible to deliver by health workers with lots big workloads.
The anticipated outcome: improvements in language, mental, and psychomotor development for approximately 3,000 children.
