Preventing and Treating Malnutrition - A Medical Condition
Crisis: 20 million children in India suffer from acute malnutrition. A very small percentage of these have access to services that can save them. 1 million children die in India every year due to severe acute malnutrition. AAH works in 633 villages in states where levels of acute malnutrition are high (15-33% for children <3 years of age).
Programs: 1) Navoday Program: a) Curative and Preventive care for malnourished children. b) Community interventions for raising awareness about malnutrition, health, and hygiene. 2) Institutional strengthening through capacity building, infrastructure development, and support. 3) Research on new formulae to reduce the cost of treatment, local high density nutritional food, evidence based policy action, and surveys.
Outcome: AAH has touched close to 0.13 million lives and has reached out to over 149,000 children <5 years of age. They have treated 23,000 malnourished children through Outpatient Therapeutic Centers and referrals to Government Treatment Centers; conducted over 47,555 community information and discussion sessions; trained over 5,358 Government frontline workers.
