FANTA - Food and Nutrition

One aspect of the growth of Hope Clinic Lukuli has been realising that lots of good projects are set up and funded by bilateral donors and then close with the materials slowly depleting their stocks and the resource being lost. World Bank projects such as CHILD and NECDP in Kampala both had good materials, still admired by the Ministry of Health, but for which almost no copies remain for use.

The FANTA project was running with USAID funding under AED a US company and its materials cover infant health and nutrition. I have made contact with the US base who referred me to:
Robert KN Mwadime (MSc., MPH, Ph.D)
Regional HIV/AIDS Specialist
Food and Nutrition Technical Assistance (FANTA) Project
Academy for Educational Development
c/o Regional Centre for Quality of Health Care, Medical School, Mulago
P. O. Box 29140, Kampala, Uganda.
Tel: +256-41-530888 (w), +256-77-517438 (c)
Fax: +256-41-876

He is based in Kampala, but has a regional remit, and so referred me to Samalie working in the Ministry of Health, in room 2-d-208. In mid to late June she will have printed copies of the FANTA materials and I can approach her for copies for the clinic. Her number is 0772 491551.
