All 21 districts in the Northern Region are implementing the Nutrition and Malaria Control for child survivalProject, being undertaken by the Ministry of Health and the Ghana Health Service.

As at September 2007,when the implementation of the programme began, only nine out of the 19 districts were implementing the project as per the project guide and only 25% of communities in those districts were benefiting.

The project which is being carried out through a US $25 million support from the World Bank, is aimed at utilising some selected communnity based health and nutrition services for children under age 5 and pregnant women in some selected districts.

As part of the the implementation process, a three-day workshop
was organised for healthcare providers and the staff of the Regional Co-ordinating Council and District Assemblies to sensitise them to the project.

The Regional Director of Health Services, Dr. Akwasi Twuasi explained that participants were drawn from the various sectors of the region to ensure the success of the project.

He mentioned that the project would continue to promote the
availability and usage of long lasting insecticide treated nets among children under five and pregnant women so as to control the spread of malaria.
