We are excited to be part of the development of an innovative tool that supports healthcare workers. The tool assists in monitoring the growth of infants and toddlers. These tools aim to improve how growth data is captured and interpreted but, more importantly, enhance the way in which healthcare workers engage with caregivers through constructive dialogue.

Establishing meaningful conversations enables healthcare workers to establish rapport and learn more about the child and caregiver’s context, allowing for preventative intervention to take place when necessary. This fits into the broader movement in South Africa around empowering caregivers as the central figure to their child’s wellbeing.

Plotting growth trends correctly and conveying supportive, constructive messages to caregivers is an essential task for healthcare workers. It is also key to ensuring the healthy development of infants and toddlers. The tool is designed to be tactile, flexible and easy-to-use by health-care workers when plotting key measurements such as the baby’s weight and height on a chart during a consultation, and comparing these changes over time.

We will help revise and pilot the tool with health-care workers across greater Cape Town. This is to create the best possible tool, with the highest possible impact. The inception of the tool came about as a means to accompany the Road to Health Booklet. Pending a nationwide roll-out, it has the potential to reach every newborn child in South Africa. The tool is the brainchild of Innovation Edge and the Slide + Guide has been designed by CHCLT.
