(Business in Cameroon) - Nestle's Cameroonian subsidiary has via its Nestle Nutrition Institute just completed two sessions of its African nutrition course in Yaoundé and Douala, official sources said. Over two days, 129 health professionals took part in this continuing medical education program aimed at developing the knowledge of health professionals in the child nutrition sector.

As planned, trained professionals will be better equipped to better advise parents on the eating practices and behaviors to be adopted to meet their children’s specific nutritional needs. The training was organized in partnership with the Ministry of Public Health and the midwives association of Cameroon (Asfac).

According to the Swiss food giant, this training is a concrete solution to help fight malnutrition in Cameroon, as to improve children’s nutrition, health and well-being.

In Cameroon’s central region, the rate of stunted under 5 is 25% (including 15% in Yaoundé), and 23% in the Littoral region (including 16% in Douala).
