Positive Deviance/Hearth: A Resource Guide for Sustainably Rehabilitating Malnourished Children
Year of publishing:
This publication provides very useful guidance on using the Positive Deviance/Hearth approach to preventing and addressing child undernutrition. The approach is based on identifying positive behaviors practiced by the mothers or caretakers of well-nourished children from poor families and transferring such positive practices to others in the community with malnourished children. The “Hearth” or home is the location for the nutrition education and rehabilitation sessions.
