Welcome to the Nutrition module of the HEAT Programme.
The national health strategy of Ethiopia emphasises the provision of effective health promotion and disease prevention services at the community level. The first Millennium Development Goal (MDG1) calls for the eradication of extreme poverty and hunger by 2015. Achievement of MDG1 is crucial for national socioeconomic progress and development.
For this purpose, Ethiopia has developed a National Nutrition Strategy (NNS) and launched a National Nutrition Programme (NNP) in 2008. The vision of the NNS/NNP is ‘to ensure that all Ethiopians secure adequate nutritional status in a sustainable manner which is an essential requirement for a healthy and productive life’.
This Nutrition Module has 13 study sessions, starting with the basics of nutrition and finishing with a session on the Nutrition Information System in Ethiopia.
