Timely monitoring and treatment is critical for proper child growth and development. Growth monitoring consists of routine measurements to detect abnormal growth, combined with treatment when this is detected.
I propose a mobile application, which can also be used by health workers in a home setting. This aims to improve nutrition, reduce the risk of death or inadequate nutrition, educate parents and lead to early referral for conditions manifested by growth disorders. This application would act as a guide for monitoring child development for early detection and management of developmental difficulties, and would also catalyze communication between health workers and patients.
