Acknowledgments, This manual would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of the. Save the Children Malawi staff members who implemented the school health and nutrition. SHN program in the districts of Mangochi and Balaka In particular we would like to. thank Mary Mukaka Humphreys Kalengamaliro Mathews Chavunya Oddoi Chimpembe. and Master Chitabwino for sharing their experience. The manual was drafted by Mohini Venkatesh the SHN Specialist at Save the Children with. editorial input from Anastasia Said and design support by Helen Waller Natalie Roschnik. Seung Lee and Dan Abbott from the Save the Children SHN team reviewed the manual and. provided critical inputs in making this a technically sound document This manual was also peer. reviewed by Mpumulo Jawati SHN Specialist Joby George Senior Health Manager and Prince. Kasinja Sponsorship Manager at Save the Children Malawi Celine Gustavson Sponsorship. Program Advisor at Save the Children and Gail Snetro Senior Africa Regional Capacity. Building Advisor for Health at Save the Children, We are very grateful to the Malawi Country Office Director Michael McGrath for approving. funds for this manual and its publication The manual was produced using funds from Save the. Children s child sponsorship program, A special thank you also goes to the schools and communities of Mangochi and Balaka.
districts for allowing Save the Children to address their health and nutritional needs over the. period of the SHN program Last but not least we extend our heartfelt gratitude to the. Ministries of Education and Health and our partners in country without whose cooperation. Save the Children would not have been able to successfully implement its SHN program in. Malawi We hope that this manual will assist the Malawian Government as they continue to. implement SHN at the national level, SCHOOL HEALTH AND NUTRITION MANUAL A GUIDE ON HOW TO IMPLEMENT PROGRAMS IN MALAWI ACKNOWLEDGMENTS. Background,School health and nutrition programs, In recent years great progress has been made in improving child survival and increasing access to education. for school age children aged 6 to 18 years in the developing world Though they suffer lower mortality. than younger children school age children continue to face high levels of illness and malnutrition during. their crucial growing years decreasing their ability to pay attention and progress in school It is estimated. that 210 million school age children suffer from iron deficiency anemia IDA 60 million from iodine. deficiency 85 million from vitamin A deficiency and close to 800 million from soil transmitted worms 1. If left untreated these diseases can cause permanent impairment to their intellectual capacity chronic. illness and poor growth, Ensuring that children are healthy and able to learn is essential for an effective education system Good health. increases school enrollment and reduces absenteeism and brings more of the poorest and most disadvantaged. children to school many of whom are girls It is these children who are often least healthy most malnourished. and who will gain the most educationally from improved health Once healthy and well nourished they not. only stay longer in school they also learn more and become healthier and more productive adults. School health and nutrition SHN programs address the critical health and nutrition conditions that keep. children out of school and inhibit their ability to learn while creating a safe and supportive environment that. promotes healthy behaviors Simple interventions such as regular deworming and micronutrient. supplementation prevent children from becoming anemic and thus have a substantial effect on their school. performance The promotion of hygienic behaviors in schools such as hand washing with soap is among the. most effective ways to prevent diarrheal diseases and pneumonia which together are responsible for the. deaths of more than 3 5 million children under five. Schools are also a cost effective option to identifying and addressing priority health and nutrition problems in. children School based micronutrient supplementation and mass deworming do not require diagnosis and. selective treatment and cost anywhere between 4 and 30 US cents per child They have been shown to. improve school performance and restore losses of up to 21 IQ points 1 2 Because there are generally more. schools than health centers school based health interventions reach more homes and more children including. non school going children and their families, SCHOOL HEALTH AND NUTRITION MANUAL A GUIDE ON HOW TO IMPLEMENT PROGRAMS IN MALAWI BACKGROUND. The international FRESH framework for SHN, At the Dakar World Education Forum in 2000 international organizations including the World Health.
Organization WHO the United Nations Children s Fund UNICEF the United Nations Educational Scientific. and Cultural Organization UNESCO and the World Bank agreed that SHN was essential to reaching the. Education for All EFA Goals A framework was thus developed outlining the key elements of SHN. programming FRESH or Focusing Resources on Effective School Health is the framework for a common. approach to SHN programming see Figure 1 below It forms a starting point for program design and. establishes the basis for country programming The four components of the FRESH framework are. 1 Safe school environment This includes provision of safe portable water adequate sanitation and the. promotion of good hygiene practices for a safe and healthy school environment. 2 School health and nutrition policy This includes advocacy support and promotion of national and. school level SHN policies, 3 School based delivery of health services This includes micronutrient supplementation deworming. vision and hearing screening school based management of minor illnesses and injuries. 4 Skills based health education This component is centered on a behavior change approach to the. promotion of good health nutrition and hygiene and prevention of HIV. In addition the success of the program and sustainability of its achievements hinges on some key. supporting strategies, 1 Effective partnerships between teachers and health workers and between the education. and health sectors,2 Effective community partnerships. 3 Pupil awareness and participation,Figure 1 The FRESH framework. SCHOOL HEALTH AND NUTRITION MANUAL A GUIDE ON HOW TO IMPLEMENT PROGRAMS IN MALAWI BACKGROUND. Save the Children s SHN experience in Malawi, Save the Children is one of the leading international non governmental organizations INGOs in the.
field of SHN SHN is one of the main program areas of Save the Children s efforts to support marginalized. communities with quality education Implemented in 20 countries across the globe Save the Children reached. nearly 1 5 million with its SHN programs in 2008 Other program areas of Save the Children s education work. are early childhood development basic education and adolescent learning. In Malawi Save the Children has served children since 1983 beginning with child sponsorship programs in 39. government schools in Mangochi district Over the years it has built a strong partnership with the Government. of Malawi Ministries at both national and district levels It has supported the government through implementing. village based schools strengthening the quality of education in government schools and a partnership project. to enhance child survival and reproductive health, In 1994 the Government of Malawi took an important step of introducing Free Primary Education FPE With. this move primary school enrollment increased almost by 50 as families who previously could not afford to. send their children to school could do so with the introduction of FPE However one of the key challenges. School health and nutrition SHN programs address the critical health and nutrition conditions that keep children out of school and inhibit their ability to learn while creating a safe and supportive environment that promotes healthy behaviors Simple interventions such as regular deworming and micronutrient supplementation prevent children from becoming anemic and thus have a substantial
