Based on this, information, the prevalence of malnutrition was determined in COBES centres in Western.
The broad objective of the study was to determine the nutritional status of children in selected representative Health Centres where Moi University students go for COBES placement during their second year of study for community diagnosis fieldwork.
The study was carried out in selected COBES Centres in Western Kenya between March and May 2008.
Prior to commencement of community diagnosis programme of COBES 2 of Moi University, permission was sought from the Institutional Research and Ethics Committee of Moi University School of Medicine.
The results from the other COBES centres were consistent with work earlier reported for the region .
The way forward would be to include all the COBES health Centres (n=13-15) and standardise all the data collection methods.
We would also like to thank the COBES committee, Dean, School of Medicine and the University for facilitating data collection.
