This is a report of two batches of the training activities conducted to Traditional Healers for the early detection and management of Nutritional Anemia through their active participation at the community level. In two batches a total of 50 healers (32 males and 18 females) were provided three days training. Detailer information on the training is given below. This activity was financially sup- ported by SIGHT AND LIFE, Switzerland and conducted by the organization called Community Health Institute (CHINST), Nepal. Some facts about Traditional Healers: In Nepal, there are an estimated 500,000 traditional healers (THs), compared to the country’s 100,000 health personnel, including doctors, paramedics, female community health volunteers (FCHVs), and other health workers. Most Nepalese have a deep rooted belief in divine power and consult THs first on the treatment of diseases, even when medical services are available nearby.
