NLiS Country Profile: Afghanistan

3 in 5 babies not breastfed in the first hour of life

Global Nutrition Monitoring Framework Country Profile: Afghanistan
However, there is a growing expectation that countries in the Movement can demonstrate how effective partnerships can lead to progress in spending and implementation and contribute to results and impact. In order for poverty reduction strategies to be effective, they must address food access, availability and safety. Salt iodization has been adopted as the main strategy for eliminating iodine-deficiency disorders as a public health problem, and the aim is to achieve universal salt iodization. Low women's status is an important contributor to child malnutrition, which in turn accounts for high global hunger indexes for South Asian countries. Activity and Feeding have secondary data files with higher resolution.

Saturated fatty acid and trans-fatty intake for adults and children. WHO Member States and all relevant stakeholders are invited to comment. WHO and UNICEF today issued new step guidance to increase support for breastfeeding in health facilities that provide maternity and newborn services. This document should be useful to academic and research institutes, and groups and individuals who work on these indicators. This document is available in English, French, Spanish, and Russian. The Chinese and Arabic version of the report will also be available soon.

An electric stimulus at the rear of the belt keeps the animals running for the duration of the test. In this configuration, the animal is provided with an appealing cubby-hole fabricated from a translucent tube.

The diminished lighting within the tube offers an environment conducive to nesting. The cubby-hole is supported by a mechanism affixed to an electronic balance.

Includes calorimeter humidity compensation for cold-challenge experiments. The primary data file separates each measure into epochs defined by the response time of Calorimetric readings. Activity and Feeding have secondary data files with higher resolution. The secondary activity file allows higher temporal resolution with shorter bin times; user selectable, typically between second intervals.

The secondary Feeding file is event driven, and records the time and mass of each feeding bout. CLAX allows for organizing animals within an experiment into treatment groups and provides tools for data trimming to remove information collected during animal acclimation.

Data samples can also be sub-grouped into data collected during light or dark periods. The resulting trimmed and re-organized data may then be subjected to further analysis by CLAX. Site crafted by Robintek: Feeders are designed to account for spillage of food and to prevent foraging, a combination which provides the most accurate food intake monitor on the market.

Food Access Control - Access to food can be placed under automatic computerized control. Additionally, this option also includes paradigms for Yolked or Paired feeding. The basic animal cage providing a sealed environment suitable for measuring Oxygen consumption and Carbon Dioxide production. The Center Feeder Cage maintains the same sealed environment but adds a feeder to the center of the cage to allow food intake measurements.

The Center Feeder is the most popular and universal in application, supporting all subject body types from lean to obese. An adjustable food guard allows mechanical fine tuning of food access to minimize foraging. The End Feeder Cage maintains the same sealed environment but adds an external feeder to the side of the cage to allow food intake measurements. The End Feeder provides more floor space for active subjects. Not suitable for Obese animal models.

Not compatible with Y axis activity monitoring. The Corner Feeder Cage maintains the same sealed environment but adds an external feeder to the corner of the cage to allow food intake measurements and placement of a Y axis activity sensor. Over Head Feeder Cages: The Over Head Feeder is an adaptation of our popular center feeder that places the food in a location more familiar to the subjects.

It does not account for spillage or foraging. The Double Feeder Cage supports two feeders with food intake monitoring for diet preference experiments. Shown with optional activity sensors. In this design, what appears outwardly to be a standard sipper tube is presented to the animal.

Internal to the tube is a second, electrically isolated, water delivery tube. Drinking Licks - Lick detection is implemented on the standard conductivity principle where a small, imperceptible current passes through the animal from the sipper tube to a conductive floor. Each contact with the sipper tube accrues one count. Interruption of an IR beam will accrue one "count". The height of these beams is such that they intersect the animal midway vertically.

Placement of IR photocells at a height above the animal detect rearing or jumping Z-axis. Sleeping Bouts - The photocell activity monitor can now be employed in the detection of sleeping bouts. The criteria used is the length of time with no or minimum movement. The user has control over the length of the epoch, and amount of movement that qualifies the epoch as asleep or awake.

Suitable for both rats and mice, the transmitters require no internal power source. An external field is generated by an antenna system that, momentarily, charges the transmitter.
