Tech For Development -T4D would like to invite you to a high impact Training Course in Nutrition Assessment and Survey using ENA/ EPIINFO Course to be held in Nairobi, Kenya from 16th to 20th Dec, 2019
Nutrition Assessment and Survey using ENA/ EPIINFO Course
Despite all efforts undertaken both nationally and internationally, poor nutritional status is still a fundamental cause of most non-communicable diseases and shortened life-span. The nutritional assessment and survey is done to obtain information about the prevalence and geographic distribution of nutritional disorders within a community or a specified population group. It can also be used to identify high-risk groups and to assess the role of different epidemiological factors in nutritional deficiency.
There are mainly two software programs used in nutrition assessments and surveys; ENA and EpiInfo. ENA analytical program has automated functions for sample size calculations, sample selection, quality checks, standardization for anthropometry measurements, and report generation with automatic analyses. It facilitates survey planning, data collection, analysis and reporting with the ability to generate automatic standard tables and graphs for anthropometric indices and plausibility check reports. On the other hand EpiInfo contains a module for making questionnaires and has much more sophisticated statistical functions. The two software can also be combined to ENA/EpiInfo software which combines the advantages of both systems.
