The general model used for child growth monitoring (CGM) has been largely focused on indicators grounded in the biomedical model. However, for CGW to be effective, it is crucial to include other socio-cultural constructs. This study looks to develop a cultural conceptualization of healthy growth in rural Tanzania. The process through which this is carried out is through collecting ethnographic data from caregivers, community health workers and, parents and elderly women in the Kilosa district.
