From relief to development: supplementary feeding among Khmer refugees


, : From relief to development: supplementary feeding among Khmer refugees. Health Policy and Planning 3(3): 227-236

The CARE supplementary feeding programmes in refugee and displaced person camps in Thailand were radically restructured in 1984 and 1985. The goal was to emphasize nutrition education and mothers' feeding skills. This article outlines the revised programme's development-the curriculum, the take-home ration, enrolment criteria and screening methods, teacher support, teaching methodologies, mass media, monitoring, and evaluation-and some of the major perceived benefits of this change.
