Mariyam Subba, CHHIP School Health Activist for Lingten community, comments on the positive things CHHIP is doing.—
Children grow up fast, literally and figuratively. But just how much do they grow in a year? CHHIP monitors children’s growth by measuring their height, weight, and BMI scores every six months. This lets us know if children are developing at an age-appropriate rate, and allows our School Health Activists to identify children who might need extra attention from a physician. This simple but essential intervention is just one of the ways CHHIP has been able to understand and address the health needs of the children with whom we work.
