Nutrition for health and socioeconomic development in Sub-Saharan Africa : final technical report
Objectives to improve child nutrition in Ghana have been accomplished thus far through training activities, establishment of the University of Ghana’s Nutrition Research and Training Centre, graduate training for 5 PhD and 17 MSc students, and creation of a community-based dietetic internship for North American and Ghanaian students with research projects on child nutrition. Nutrition education through multiple sectors has improved rural diets and national awareness of the growing problem of overweight among Ghanaian children has increased. Current research and interventions build on these project results.
