Comprehensive National Nutrition Survey 2016–2018
 

India’s impressive economic growth has led to considerable progress in improving livelihoods for the most vulnerable. This dynamic progress lifted 271 million people out of poverty in one decade, but strong income inequality persists (OPHI, 2019).

Malnutrition has been identified as one of the principal causes limiting India’s global economic potential (Copenhagen consensus, 2012). The remaining socio-economic inequalities have stifled more equitable growth and subsequent economic expansion. While fertility and malnutrition declined in the past two decades (IIPS, 2017), noncommunicable diseases (NCD) have arisen as major causes of death (Dandona, 2017).

In recognition of the remaining challenges in nutrition, health and hygiene/sanitation, the Government of India has launched the POSHAN Abhiyaan (National Nutrition Mission), National Health Mission and Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan (water, sanitation and hygiene) Mission. The government has matched the commitment by creating ambitious targets and supporting efforts with substantial budgets.

To provide robust data on the shifting conditions of both undernutrition and overweight and obesity, the Ministry of Health conducted the Comprehensive National Nutrition Survey (CNNS) to collect a comprehensive set of data on nutritional status of Indian children from 0–19 years of age. This survey was the largest micronutrient survey ever implemented globally. Also, the survey used gold standard methods to assess anaemia, micronutrient deficiencies and biomarkers of NCDs for the first time in India.
