Nutrition eLearning for preterm and low birthweight infants in Africa
The African Neonatal Nutrition Network (NeoNuNet) has developed an online eLearning course on feeding and nutrition that aligns with the World Health Organization policy and guidelines. It provides free educational resources relevant to nurses, dietitians, doctors, and other healthcare professionals working on a neonatal unit as well as parents. It covers a range of subjects including kangaroo mother care, breastfeeding, nutrient recommendations, probiotics, feeding practice and guideline development. The course was co-developed (TABLE 1) with clinicians based in Africa and while it is aimed at middle and low income settings in Africa, Asia and Latin America, it is equally relevant in high income settings in the UK, Europe and North America.
