Evaluation of effectiveness of good growth monitoring in south Indian villages.
We conducted a community intervention trial in 12 villages in Tamil Nadu, India to evaluate the benefits of growth monitoring.
The villages were divided into 6 « growth-monitoring package » of intervention villages (GMP) and 6 « non-growth-monitoring package » of intervention villages (NGM).
A functioning primary health care system was in place in all 12 villages.
One village nutrition worker in each of the 12 villages implemented a set of interventions including health and nutritional education.
About 550 children under the age of 60 months were studied over 4 years in GMP villages and a similar number of children in NGM villages.
The interventions were identical in the two sets of villages except for the use of growth charts in education in the 6 GMP villages.
