Feel free to put your questions in the chat!
Lydia Wisner
36:36
Did you look at any large scale community-based assessments of sick child feeding?
Pearl Selormey
48:10
Can you share how long it took the caregivers to make changes with feeding after counseling??
Lydia Wisner
49:00
How can we use this information to improve programming?
Lisa Mandell, ILCA
51:47
What are your plans to increase healthcare provider knowledge of breastfeeding, in particular the importance of continued breastfeeding during and after child illness?
Prudence Hamade
52:03
I was involved in a project in Cambodia among remote ethnic minority populations which included feeding the sick child Increasing fluid intake was challenges as we wanted the caregivers to boil the water before giving to the sick child but population did not have access to a suitable pot for boiling the water This illustrates the difficulty of following advice from health workers if the environment does not facilitate behaviour change Formative research may be needed to understand the context before giving nutrition advice
Hibret A Tilahun
53:47
Was there any observed variance among urban vs rural?
Pyae Aung
54:02
Hi I am Pyae from Myanmar. I would like to know more about KAP studies in nutrition practice and also about integration of ECD in Infant nutrition.
Hari Vinathan
55:56
What is your experience of time required for quality counseling of individual mother or for group counseling of mothers? How much on an average time is spent in such counselling sessions ?
Lydia Wisner
57:39
What guidance is out there for health workers on sick child feeding?
Marcia Griffiths
58:25
Please clarify whether we are looking at increased feeding (food) during illness or whether more food is the focus of the recuperation period; that is, during illness the focus is on continued feeding and increased intake is focused on fluids/breastfeeding.
Pearl Selormey
01:01:37
Usually counseling should be done within 30 minutes, within this time frame u can have most attention and alertness of the caregiver
Patrick Trye
01:01:56
Did you consider the educational background and economic status of caregiver in influencing the feeding practice to a sick child?
Pyae Aung
01:03:26
I would like to know more about KAP studies in nutrition practice and also about integration of ECD in Infant nutrition. Please share experience.
Pearl Selormey
01:03:38
Did you involve Fathers and grandparents in the counseling??
Dyness Kasungami
01:06:12
Thank you, the study is informative. Adding to what should be done to improve the situation; Child health programming should include strengthening IYCF in the context of well child visits and strengthening the "improving community and family practices" component of IMCI/iCCM. The counseling during illness should serve to reinforce the practices. Experience shows time limitations for the health workers as a huge barrier to effective counseling. Practically caregivers are also more concerned about the illness and getting medication so, counseling during illness will have limited impact if the general health literacy is low.
Hailemariam Legesse
01:06:21
I have observed a decreasing trend in counseling between the years 2005 and 2014, if my observation correct did you try to find why?
Leah Greenspan
01:06:28
Can you speak to how feeding guidelines are represented in preservice and inservice training.
Pearl Selormey
01:06:36
From my experience, frequent counseling and nutrition education helps alot to change mindset of caregivers around feeding. A study I conducted here in Ghana among HiV positive mothers and non HiV positive mothers children revealed that, the HiV positive mothers children were better nourished.
Pearl Selormey
01:06:52
More than the non HiV positive mothers children
