Empowering Palestinian Mothers to Protect the Bodies and Brains of their Newborns and Infants
Thursday, March 10, 2022
Since 2011, World Vision has worked with the Palestinian Authority Ministry of Health in the West Bank, Occupied Palestinian Territories, to train female volunteer Community Health Workers (CHWs) to deliver Timed and Targeted Counselling (ttC). ttC is a home visitor model to promote adoption of recommended health and nutrition behaviours during the first 1,000 days. The ttC model builds the capacity of families, creates an enabling environment to support mothers, and has been proven to be a highly effective approach to improve maternal, newborn, child health and nutrition outcomes.
