120 Health Workers Undergo Nutrition Training

MONROVIA, May 26 (LINA) – The Ministry of Health in partnership with Action Contre La Faim (ACF) has completed a four-day nutrition training for 120 health workers from 17 health facilities currently running the Out-patient Therapeutic Program (OTP) in Montserrado County.

The training was held at the New Georgia Health Center and aimed to refresh health workers on the right application and treatment of malnourished children in accordance with the Integrated Management of Acute Malnutrition (IMAM) protocol in a non-Ebola context.

A release issued in Monrovia by the ACF said the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) altered some protocols in the Liberian health sector, presenting changes in some of the health practices in hospitals and clinics.

The release also said that the Ebola outbreak led to a revision of the IMAM protocol to fit the context of Ebola.

According to the release, the health ministry and its partners are initiating trainings to return Liberia to the conventional procedures of diagnosing and treating malnutrition cases now that the country is Ebola-free.

The release named Redemption Hospital, Soniwein Clinic and Slipway Health Center, among others, as some of the health facilities represented at the training program.
