Strengthening ICDS for reduction of child malnutrition : report of the national consultation on child under nutrition and ICDS in India (英语)

India has a serious problem of child under nutrition. Reduction of child under nutrition is imperative, since it has enormous consequences for child and adult morbidity mortality, as well as productivity. Under nutrition directly affects many aspects of children's development, retarding physical and cognitive growth and increasing susceptibility to disease. India has a higher level of protein-energy malnutrition (PEM) than most parts of the world, including Sub-Saharan Africa. Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS)-India's primary policy response to child malnutrition-is well conceived and, in many ways, well positioned to address the major causes of child under nutrition. It has emerged from small beginnings in 1975 to become the country's flagship nutrition program. ICDS offers a wide range of health, nutrition and education services to children, women and adolescent girls. To maximize the impact as well as introduce evidence-based planning of ICDS, it is important to undertake periodic evaluations and make strategic changes based on the findings.
