Figures speak for themselves—fifty percent of children under five years in Madagascar are acutely or chronically malnourished. The US government through USAID/Madagascar and its community health project, Santenet2, is working to put an end to this situation by presenting, on Thursday May 24, twenty baby scales to the community health volunteers (CHVs) in Anjeva Gare and Ambanitsena communes, to help them monitor the growth of children 5 in their respective villages.

Community Health Volunteers (CHVs) are frontline public health workers who are trusted members of and/or have an unusually close understanding of the community they serve. This trusting relationship enables CHVs to serve as a liaison/link/intermediary between health/social services and the community to facilitate access to services and improve the quality and cultural competence of service delivery.
