  1. A community-based health intervention programme in pastoral and agricultural Pokot communities in Western Kenya.

    Article - En anglais

    Multiple micronutrient deficiencies in the perinatal phase are associated with poor child growth and functional impairment.

    For the pastoral child there is additional risk due to lifestyle and isolation from healthcare.

    Successful improvement in the child-rearing practices and maternal vitamin A and iron status requires community-based interventions that are sustainable.

    It is therefore recommended that for pastoral communities participatory techniques that identify and mobilize community resources should be used in the implementation of intervention programes.
