CFHS worked in partnership with BEMIS to look at the specific needs of community and voluntary sector organisations supporting work on maternal and infant nutrition across minority ethnic communities in Scotland.
BEMIS has collated information on community and voluntary organisations working in the field of maternal and infant nutrition across minority ethnic communities in Scotland, looking at what work is being carried out, the information that organisations draw on for their work and also any learning and development needs. It has also carried out interviews and focus groups with women from different ethnic communities to gather information on the sources of information/resources they have used to develop their knowledeg about maternal and infant nutrition.
The report on the work was launched at NHS Health Scotland’s Improving Maternal and Infant Nutrition in Scotland conference at Dynamic Earth on 7 February 2013 and is now available.
