Extractions: You are here: Home WELCOME! The Carolina Population Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the Institute of Nutrition and Food Hygiene, and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine are pleased to announce the availability of data from the 1989, 1991, 1993 and 1997 China Health and Nutrition Survey. The survey was conducted by an international team of researchers whose backgrounds include nutrition, public health, economics, sociology, Chinese studies, and demography. The survey took place over a 3-day period using a multistage, random cluster process to draw a sample of about 3800 households with a total of 16,000 individuals in nine provinces that vary substantially in geography, economic development, public resources, and health indicators. In addition, detailed community data were collected in surveys of food markets, health facilities, family planning officials, and other social services and community leaders. The China Health and Nutrition Survey was designed to examine the effects of the health, nutrition, and family planning policies and programs implemented by national and local governments and to see how the social and economic transformation of Chinese society is affecting the health and nutritional status of its population. The impact on nutrition and health behaviors and outcomes is gauged by changes in community organizations and programs as well as by changes in sets of household and individual economic, demographic, and social factors.

North Carolina's Pregnancy Nutrition Surveillance System (PNSS) links data from the WIC program, public maternity clinics, birth certificates and fetal death certificates. These data are collected at the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC Program) and prenatal clinics funded by the Maternal and Child Health Services Block Grant) to the State of North Carolina and the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians.

Extractions: August 4-21, 2003 Policymakers, program staff and researchers face many questions related to the monitoring and evaluation of population, health and nutrition programs in Africa: What is a good monitoring and evaluation plan for a project, a district, or national program? What indicators should be used? How should data be collected? How can health impact be shown? How can a Health Management Information System be used? How can results be effectively communicated to policy makers? These questions are important for successful implementation, design, monitoring and evaluation of population and health programs, however, there is a shortage of staff with the crucial skills to provide the answers. In order to build the capacity of professionals in this region, a three-week non-degree course will provide training in state-of-the-art monitoring and evaluation tools and techniques.

Extractions: The Senior Citizens Nutrition Program has enjoyed numerous honors for its effective service to the citizens of Mecklenburg County. On June 2, 1997, the North Carolina Governor's Council on Physical Fitness and Health awarded the program the Governor's Award for Health and Physical Fitness for Mature Adults in the Comprehensive Program category. It was recognized for the various health and fitness programs offered at each of its nutrition sites, including health screenings, nutrition education, chair aerobics ("sit-er-cise"), and participation in North Carolina Senior Games. In February, the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce named one of the program's site coordinators the 1996 Mecklenburg County Employee of the Year. The success of SCNP is also evident in the effect that it has had on its participants. SCNP serves highly vulnerable people with characteristics that tend to place them at increased health and nutritional risk. Nearly 90 percent of participants are living with incomes below poverty. SCNP has responded by meeting two-thirds of the RDA needs, instead of the required one-third, for individual clients as appropriate. According to the program's outcome data, 90 percent of all participants are well nourished and their physical and social well-being are maintained. During the past fiscal year, 93 percent of congregate participants maintained current health status and nearly 99 percent of home-based participants were appropriately maintained at home. According to State and regional surveys, 95 percent of SCNP clients are fully satisfied with the program's meals and services.
