ENA Training Guide for Health Workers – Handouts

The Essential Nutrition Actions (ENA) framework is an operational framework for managing the advocacy, planning and delivery of an integrated package of preventive nutrition actions encompassing infant and young child feeding (IYCF), micronutrients and women’s nutrition. Using multiple contact points, it targets health services and behavior change communication support to women and young children during the first 1,000 days of life – from conception through the first two years of life. ENA Health Worker Training Guide equips health service providers with the technical, action-oriented nutrition knowledge and counseling skills needed to support pregnant women, mothers with children under two years of age, and other key family members to adopt optimal nutrition practices. This course translates up-to-date international guidelines into action-oriented nutrition practices. Training handouts are distributed to participants at the beginning of the ENA training.

These handouts are designed to provide the heatlh worker with basic information about Essential Nutrition Actions.
