ANRiN Project: CS-SUNN partner consortium to train over 200 CHIPS for data collection - ITREALMS

ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

The Civil Society Scaling Up Nutrition in Nigeria (CS-SUNN) has trained some 200 
Community Health Influencers, Promoters and Services (CHIPS) in partnership with a consortium, reports ITREALMS.
The group in a public statement available to ITREALMS revealed that they collaborated with the Network For Health Equity And Development (NHED) and other consortium members in this project.

Aside CHIPS, there were some Community Volunteers (CVs), Supervisors, Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and Health Workers in Gombe state on quality delivery of the 7 Basic Package Nutrition Services (7BPNS) and the use of the Accelerating Nutrition Results in Nigeria (ANRiN) Mobile Application for data collection. 

The 7BPNS are; Maternal, Infant and Young Child Nutrition (MIYCN), Vitamin A Supplementation, De-worming exercise, Micronutrient Powders, Zinc/Low-osmolarity Oral Rehydration Salts (LO-ORS), Iron- Folate Supplementation and Intermittent Preventive Treatment with Sulphadoxine Pyrimethamine (IPTPs).

The 3-days training held recently in Gombe state is implemented under the (ANRiN) project; a 3-year project aimed at improving the nutritional status of under 5 children, adolescent girls and pregnant women through the provision of Basic Package of Nutrition Services to communities in 62 wards of 6 Local Government Areas (Gombe, Billiri, Kaltungo, Balanga, Yamatu-Deba and Shomgom) of Gombe state.

NHED-ANRiN Nutrition Specialist, Olufunmilayo Adebambo, said the effective delivery of the 7BNPS requires equity with a focus on the under-served (reaching out to right beneficiaries in the community), quality delivery of services leveraging on existing structures, efficient management of supplies, rigorous data management and community engagement.
