Early Childhood Feeding, Nutrition and Development
Abstract:
The Nepal Multiple Indicator Surveillance (NMIS) began with a multicultural baseline survey in early 1995. The NMIS was designed from the beginning as an-ongoing monitoring scheme to produce information useful for planning at national, district, community and household levels, rather than as a one-off survey. Nepal, as a signatory to the 1989 UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, is committed to report on its implementation. Among other things, the NMIS serves as an important means of monitoring violations of children's rights in Nepal. It has also assisted HMG Nepal to monitor progress towards the 1990s Goals and Mid-decade Goals agreed at the World Summit for Children as embodied in its National Plan of Action for Children and Development for the 1990s. The NMIS process comprises repeated cycles of data collection, analysis, interpretation, and communication of results to stimulate action. Each cycle focuses on a priority issue or set of issues. Cycle 2 focused on Primary Education in the spring and summer of 1995; and cycle 3 on Diarrhoea, Water and Sanitation in the first half of 1996. The first cycle of the NMIS produced information about malnutrition and feeding practices among young children and indicated the need for further information on this issue. This fourth cycle of the NMIS focuses particularly on issues of child feeding and malnutrition and also provides some information about child development milestones and levels of disability among young children. #UNICEF #RIGHTS #CHILDRIGHTS #PROTECTIONOFCHILD
