DEVELOPMENTS IN MATERNAL AND NEWBORN CARE HEALTH NURSING AND SERVICES: THE PHILIPPINE PERSPECTIVE

Author : Judith Odanee G. Magwilang*

Abstract

The Millennium Development Goal 4 has only one target: To reduce the under-five mortality rate by two-thirds in the period between 1990 and 2015 Undernutrition is estimated to contribute to more than 33 percent of all deaths in children under five. So, efforts to improve household food security and nutrition have increased the chances of children growing to adulthood. n this regard, in combination with efforts by the Renewed Efforts against Child Hunger and Undernutrition (REACH) and WHO, WFP, and UNICEF have helped communities and households secure access to nutritionally adequate diets to minimize child undernutrition. Efforts include the provision of training materials, community-centred initiatives, training programmes for local and national staff, nutrition education programmes, and promotion of forums on community nutrition and household food security. Improving complementary feeding for babies, or giving foods in addition to breast milk, has led to significant reduction in the child mortality caused by under nutrition.
