Breastfeeding and Nutrition Field Survey to Commence in November
Within the National Breastfeeding and Nutrition Campaign, the Ministry of Health (MOH) represented by the Nutrition Department at the Directorate General of Primary Health Care is planning to conduct a preliminary field study in all Governorates of the Sultanate during November 2019.
The study is designed to carry out initial assessment of Omanis knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors regarding breastfeeding and nutrition. The study will contain households’ visits in addition to meetings at the health centers.
The survey feedbacks will be utilized for the national campaign to draft awareness messages with Omani characteristics.
The Ministry hence calls upon all citizens to cooperate with the survey teams and facilitate their missions. This is said to avoid occurrences of any rumors that would disturb the workflow of the field survey teams.
