Distance learning courses on reducing maternal anaemia, child anaemia and stunting

World Vision International is offering facilitated, distance learning courses on Reducing Maternal Anaemia (5 weeks), Reducing Childhood Anaemia (9 weeks), and Reducing Stunting.

The courses are designed particularly for development workers (from various sectors), as well as other interested learners. The courses include practical field assignments and promote interactive learning through discussion forums with peer learners around the world, as well as an expert facilitator in multi-sectoral programming for nutrition.

Reducing Maternal Anaemia (RMA): This five-week on-the-job training course (with a one-week study break) helps learners understand what maternal anaemia is, its multiple causes and how to prevent it with practical field assignments and expert facilitation.

Reducing Childhood Anaemia (RCA): This nine-week ‘on-the-job’ training course (with a one-week study break) expands on the maternal anaemia course. It focuses on understanding childhood anaemia and how to address this issue in the community.

Reducing Childhood Stunting: Part 1 of this ‘on-the-job’ training course is a four-week introduction to childhood stunting, which explores how every sector contributes to the reduction of stunting via different pathways. Part 2 is an eight-week course (with a oneweek study break) on nutrition-specific interventions along the life cycle that help to prevent childhood stunting.

The next course World Vision International distance learning course is on reducing maternal anaemia and will run 19 May–27 Jun 2014 (study week 2–6 Jun).

The fee is $450 USD per course but is free for first-time users.
