Growth Monitoring Chart

Challenges with the Growth Monitoring Chart

  • The birth weight is recorded for delivery at health facilities but seldom for home delivery.
     
  • The date of the weighing and the weight of child are not always recorded.
     
  • The weight is not always plotted in the chart.
     
  • Special events witch may affect children growth are not recorded.
     
  • After the immunization cycle is completed, children are not taken anymore on a monthly / two monthly bases making it difficult to plot their growth.
     
  • Very often nutrition counselling and health education is not given along the weighing session due to lack of time and personnel.
     
  • Even if the weight-below-the-curve indicates suspicion of acute malnutrition, it is not a diagnostic feature.
