Success Story - Empowered Health Extension Worker Atsede transforms a health facility

When Atsede Seifu first joined the Tekeze Health Post in Welkait Wereda as a Health Extention Worker, she was highly affected by “that intensive sadness and worry of seeing children suffer from malnutrition despite the availability of different food items in their hands or at home.” With this motivation, she set about implementing quality improvement models supported by Growth through Nutrition following her on-the-job training - improving the organized records of the facility's services. Atsede even goes out of her way to encourage home-gardening and scaling up of Enhanced Community Conversations (ECC) with the support of the project.
