The longer term nutritional impact of a maternal and child health program

, : The longer term nutritional impact of a maternal and child health program. Philippine Journal of Nutrition 34(4): 189-195

The nutritional status of former TMCH [Targeted Maternal and Child Health Program] participants, 79 infants and 208 preschoolers, taken upon admission to the program, upon graduation and 1-7 yr after graduation were compared. The nutritional status of younger siblings was also determined. Among infants there was complete rehabilitation of the 3rd degree cases and a 17% reduction in the 2nd degree cases upon graduation while some years after graduation, no 3rd degree cases were found and there was a further 38% reduction in the 2nd degree cases. Among preschoolers, there was a 58 and 49% reduction in 3rd and 2nd degree cases, respectively, upon graduation and a further reduction some years after graduation. The younger siblings were better in nutritional status than the subjects prior to the latter's participation in the TMCHP. The TMCHP apparently had longer term benefits than just rehabilitation during program participation.
