WHO mHealth D-Tree eNUT program to prevent early childhood malnutritionNorth A district, Unguja, Zanzibar Chaani Kubwa Primary Health Care UnitMothers bring their children in for examination, where they are weighed and measured against standards, the data is collected via smartphone into the eNUT system, and recommendations are made by the health workers.This is the full process as described by Julia Ruben of D-Tree:The children are screened (weight, MUAC etc.) and registered if they are severely malnourished. They are given physical exam and appetite test. If there are major issues in either they are referred to higher level care (in-patient intervention). If not they are counseled and treated (plumpy’nut, vitamin a, etc.); they come back weekly or biweekly for examination and treatment. When they reach their target weight they are discharged as cured. At any time if complications arise they will be referred to inpatient; if they take a really long time to reach their target weight or they lose weight they will also be referred. If they stop showing up for appointments they are discharged (but not as cured -as a defaulter). If they are referred and discharged from inpatient they should come back to out patient and be re-enrolled.Health care workers are the woman in all white and the woman with a bright orange and green shawl.
