Watch: Frontline workers in action in Tanzania
Frontline workers are often the primary point of contact to guide women through their pregnancy journeys. Watch how Nutrition International works with the Government of Tanzania to improve quality care for pregnant women and newborns through critical touchpoints.
Posted on September 29, 2023
What nutrients are important to consume while pregnant? How long should a newborn be exclusively breastfed? What’s the frequency of check-ups a woman should have while pregnant and after giving birth? Frontline workers, whether a nurse at a health centre or a community health volunteer, are often the first point of contact to help to-be parents navigate the nutritional needs and requirements of a growing family.
Nutrition International works in partnership with the Tanzanian government to support comprehensive strengthening of the health system. This includes training of frontline workers to provide quality care for a positive pregnancy through to taking care of a newborn. Watch these frontline workers in action and see the impact they have on pregnant women and new mothers in Tanzania.
