Child Health Initiative

Overview

Children born to MYCHI mothers continue to be provided with essential health care and monitoring through monthly home visits, growth monitoring and promotion (GMP), health camp, community meetings, and immunizations. Mothers in Fakir Bagan who do not participate in the maternal health initiative may enroll their young children (0-3 years) in the child health initiative at any time.

The Child Health Initiative is currently being revised to make the programs more effective, incorporate changes in international practice, and lessons learned over the past 6 years. There will be a stronger focus using community mobilization and participatory development to facilitate sustainable, community-driven solutions.
