Malnutrition & Anaemia – A Global Concern

United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal (2.2) envisages to end all forms of malnutrition, including achieving by 2025, the internationally agreed targets on stunting & wasting in children under 5 years of age and address the nutritional needs of adolescent girls, pregnant and lactating women and older person.

India suffers with one of the serious issues of child malnutrition in present time. Although the country has witnessed significant progress in its battle against child malnutrition over the past decades, the progress has been quite uneven. Nearly every third child in India is undernourished. The prevalence of Anaemia amongst children, adolescent girls and women is equally worrisome. More than half of women of India in age group of 15-49 years suffer from Iron deficiency Anaemia, which is mainly due to inadequate nutrient diet.
