Medical and nursing students (under the supervision of qualified nurses) track and measure the growth of pre-school children with the help of our partners; Opportunity International. This allows us to capture data and analyse effectively. These assessments allow us to timeously identify if a child’s lack of growth is a result of pathological problems or nutritional insufficiency.
Eye & hearing assessments
Eye and hearing assessments are done from 5 years upwards. Coupled with a lack of brain development, low blood count and anaemia are also linked to poor eye health, therefore it is crucial to detect at a young age. This is also funding related.
