In the last quarter, Child and Family Foundation (CFU) conducted several integrated static and community outreaches at CFU Medical center and in the communities of Kamuli District. During these outreaches the following services were offered: Nutrition assessment of adolescents, Referral/linkage to care of clients with malnutrition and other medical conditions, nutrition education and counseling, and training of caregivers on nutrition assessment using the MUAC tape.  We had planned 24 outreaches, however, we implemented 19. We further screened 281 TB suspects, 290 for HIV,17 screened for BP, 386 screened for disability, and 3 screened for antenatal care.

Various topics were covered during these sessions namely; caring for a malnourished child, how to identify malnutrition, Positioning and attachment during breastfeeding, optimal breastfeeding, complementary feeding, balanced diet, maternal nutrition during pregnancy and breastfeeding (lactating), when to take a child to the health facility, danger signs of illness and disease, caring and Feeding for a sick, optimal complementary feeding, good hygienic practices, and feeding a sick child, continued breastfeeding up to two years and beyond or one year for HIV exposed infants.
