Combating Nutritional Blindness in Children: A Case Study of Technical Assistance in Indonesia focuses on the processes in technical assistance (TA) as applied to the Nutritional Blindness Research Project, a case study on nutritional blindness among children in Indonesia.
The manuscript first offers information on the Nutritional Blindness Research Project, as well as the processes and reactions to TA, xerophthalmia, and Helen Keller International. The text then tackles the development of a research project, including proposal, initial organization, and staffing, as well as periodic observation of children at home.
The book examines the treatment of children in the hospitals, and particularly notes the planning phase, study and treatment of the disease, and socioeconomic data of patients and their families. The text also underscores the participation of the World Health Organization and USAID in the project and funding of the project.
The manuscript is a dependable reference for students of economic and social development administration and international technical assistance.
