Dear All,

I am current masters student at EHESP School of Public Health in France. By December we are supposed to come up with our framework for our research project. My Topic is: Adolescent Nutrition needs during menstruation period. I aim to work with any Nutrition department in Malawi, either The Department of Nutrition or any organization, or hospital or Bunda College. However it's hard for me to get hold of them.

OBJECTIVE: To comprehend the extent to which adolescent Nutrition health is addressed in order to improve nutritional outcomes in Malawi, as well as to highlight the global evidence-base and best practices in addressing adolescent nutrition in order to reduce stunting and improve the nutritional status of the overall population.

I would like to ask your advise as well, do you think it will be feasible to recruit 200 Adolescent age from 15 to 22 University students who are residing on their own(meaning they make their own food choices) I want to observe what they eat during the menstruation period. The first month we observe 100 and the second month 100 again. Questionnaires to be used. And we will compare the standard of Nutrition Adolescent needs with the Malawian standard or the world health standard. Comparing if they are indeed eating as required. If not? Could this be the cause of Malnutrition in women of childbearing? In Malawi? Talk of lack of Iron and the like.

Looking forward to your assistance.
