Revolutionizing Malnutrition Care : India's New Protocol.



  Oct 11, 2023

Addressing Malnutrition in India



To combat the pressing issue of malnutrition, the Centre introduced a national protocol to manage severe acute malnourished (SAM) children.

Key Points:

Where?
 
SAM children without medical complications will be treated at anganwadi centers, not in nutrition rehabilitation centers (NRC).


Aim:
 
Identify and provide extensive care for malnourished children. Early detection and intervention are prioritized.


Details:
 
Children showing severe symptoms, like bilateral pitting oedema, will be admitted to NRCs.


Innovations:
 
New measures include ‘appetite testing’ and a ‘buddy mother’ system to supervise and exchange guidance.


Data Insights:
 
National Family Health Survey-5 indicates improvement in nutrition metrics compared to previous years.


Community Focus:
 
Emphasis on community involvement ensures a more holistic approach. Local nutritious foods and supportive medical care are pillars of this approach.
Through this protocol, the government aims for a time-bound and systematic solution to a persistent issue.
