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 680 villages in states where levels of acute malnutrition are high (15-33% for children <3 years of age).
  • Programs: 1) Curative and Preventive care for malnourished children. 2) Institutional strengthening through capacity building, infrastructure development, and support. 3) Community interventions for raising awareness about malnutrition, health, and hygiene. 4) 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 0.7 million lives and has reached out to over 90,000 children <5 years of age. They have treated 16,000 malnourished children through Outpatient Therapeutic Centers and referrals to Government Treatment Centers; conducted over 22,000 community information and discussion sessions; trained over 3,370 Government frontline workers.
