This paper reports some of the results of an evaluation of three child health programmes in rural Zaire which used growth monitoring as a screening tool for targeting health an nutrition interventions.
The monthly sessions to which mothers brought their children were observed, the health workers interviewed, and information obtained on the supervision system in the programmes, in order to determine whether the health workers accurately identified at-risk children an provided appropriate interventions through the use of growth monitoring information.
