Thanks to JSI for presenting the findings from their recent study. SUN CSA Member organisations understand more about the current health status, behaviors, attitudes, and norms related to critical reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health and nutrition (RMNCAHN) indicators in five provinces (Savannakhet, Salavan, Sekong, Oudomxay, and Phongsaly).
Some key findings include that many youths have had little interaction with the health system and were unsure of where to go for SRH services. Up to 31% of newborn infants are fed food other than breastmilk in the first 3 days. There is concern about limited free medicine supplies at health centers and hospitals. These are some result from Baseline Assessment under Capacity Strengthening on Maternal Child Health and Nutrition Project by JSI.
Thank you Mr Phoutthasone Phimmakaisone from JSI Research and Training Institute for sharing the RMNCAHN indicator with 32 staff at SUN CSA Friday Hangout on 1st September 2023!
