Zinc supplementation and growth in children Biological, behavioural and contextual rationale Ian Darnton-Hill Adjunct Professor, Tufts University, USA and University of Sydney, Australia July Recent global estimates indicate that over a quarter of children under 5 years of age are stunted, and consequently are at an increased risk of dying and other adverse consequences throughout life.
Although zinc supplementation is considered to be safe 810 and has been recommended as an effective intervention to reduce morbidity associated with diarrhoea and lower respiratory infections in young children 812the likely need for daily administration of zinc supplements presents a number of programmatic challenges.
The main operational constraints to successful delivery of such supplements include procurement and distribution of supplements over an extended period of time; limited access to, and poor utilization of, health services by the target population; inadequate training and motivation of frontline health workers; inadequate counselling of target recipients or their caregivers; and low adherence by the intended beneficiaries.
The limited impact of zinc supplementation suggests that such an intervention should be part of more comprehensive efforts to improve the general nutritional status of children, particularly in the first two years of life.Sydney DBT are a team of highly experienced DBT clinicians.
We know and understand how to use DBT to help people change their lives. One stepfather killed a twenty-tow month old baby girl for failing to use the toilet. Abusing parents will usually defend the right to use physical force as a disciplinary measure, even to the point of injuring the child (Wasermann, ).
