About the Report

Malnutrition is an important public health problem plaguing India, threatening to affect its economic growth, especially through its intergenerational effects. India is home to nearly half (48%) of the world’s malnourished children. In comparison, Rajasthan has a higher percentage of underweight children at 50.6 per cent while 52 per cent are too small for their age. With respect to wasting, Rajasthan's record with 11.5 per cent is better than the national average. With the ongoing interventions of the ICDS, the percentage of underweight children has come down (4.1 per cent) as also the percentage of severely malnourished children (1.7 per cent).

Thus, eradicating malnutrition requires to be a Jan Andolan as it is not possible for one single sector to tackle the magnitude of the problem by themselves. The Government recognizes the ‘need’ to be a Jan Andolan and the important role the private sector can play into it.
