  1. 1. Nourish to Flourish REDUCING MALNUTRITIONTEAM DETAILS COLLEGE :Keshav Memorial Institute of Technology TEAM CO-ORDINATOR : Divya Members : Bhavya,Karthik,Suresh,Ankita
  2. 2. The Government of India spends 10,867 Crores annually on the mid day meal scheme and promises 450 calories for primary per meal which covers 10.4 crore children. The programme is claiming to reach 80.6 lakhexpectant, pregnant and lactating mothers along with 3.93 crore children (under 6 years of age). 1,241,749 operational Aanganwadi centres have been set up. The Government has passed the Food security bill promising 85 Crores for this project and covering 70% of rural and 50% of urban population. When the Government spends so many crores on nutritioning the citizens why is 50% of the population under malnutrition???
  3. 3. Reasons for the failure  The Government has focused on providing with the calories required but has ignored the nutrients required to provide those calories.  The schemes working are just focusing on the short term goals which results in the repetition of the malnutrition cycle.  Emergency services incase of malnutrition are not given, which results in the deterioration of the child’s health which in turn leads to death.  The Government has ignored the children who do not attend the Government schools , which means children who do not attend Government schools do not benefit to the schemes provided.  The beggars who have no ration card due to no residential address are one of the major sectors of malnourished in India.
  4. 4. IDENTIFY REHABILITATE MAINTAIN  Identification of the most emergency cases of malnutrition in a specified area.  Admission of the identified cases to the nearest rehabilitation center.  Maintenance by providing income through jobs as farmers as the best way to nourish is to provide them with the money required.  Education on the nutrition needs. STRATEGY TO ERADICATE MALNUTRITION
  5. 5. Identification Recovered Rehabiliate .Refurbish. Recover Rehabilitation centres will be setup at the district level with residential facility and people are kept admited until fully nourished. Wards (stay of malnourished until they become fully nourished) Representatives from various NGO’S Student interns Nursing staff Introduction of Therapeutic food Anganwadi worker
  6. 6. Experienced doctors and NGO doctors Nursing staff Student interns Reason for choosing them • Have a vast knowledge about efficient treatment. • Reaching out to the most needy of the nation which they would have dreamt of while becoming a doctor.  Have skills needed to keep a child under perfect observation.  Employment opportunity to the nurses in government sector.  A good opportunity to have a experience in the real world and a bullet point on their resume. Number Around 3000 experienced doctors. Around 35,000 nurses and other nursing staff. Around 1500 student interns Skills required  Sense of responsibility for the nation  Active and enthusiastic  Lively and friendly  Patient and hard working.  Good relationship with nurses and children  Good Leadership qualities A center of experienced doctors , nursing staff and interns is setup.
  7. 7. Construction cost Manpower cost Equipment cost Construction of the rehabilitation center Construction of the therapeutic industry Nursing staff (30 lakhs pa) Experts (10 lakhs pa) Industry workers (8 lakhs pa) Drivers for transport of Therapeutic food (2 lakhs pa) Basic rehabilitation center equipment cost (50 lakhs) Therapeutic food equipment cost(50 lakhs) 1.5 cr 5o lakhs pa 1 cr The rehabilitation center will require 3 cr investment by the government and cooperate bodies. The funding will be made by the public and private sector in the ratio 1:1.For every new hospital coming up in urban cities their should be a 50% funding for the rural rehabilitation center.
  8. 8. STRATAGY TO IMPROVE AGRICULTURE Nationalization of agriculture COLLECTION OF AGRICULTURAL UNUSED LAND • The agricultural unused land should be taken on lease or bought by the government. APPOINTMENT OF FARM DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT • A farm development officer should be appointed to the government farms in a particular village. JOBS FOR FARMERS IN FARMS • The economically backward farmers should be given jobs in the farms for which they get paid without the consideration of profits or losses of the farm. In India about 60.53% of the land is agricultural land according to 2010 World bank report . Though the irrigated land is only 34.3% of the agricultural land. This land should be taken up by the government and farms should be developed on these lands. The profits of these farms will be taken by the government leading to the increase of the GDP of the nation.
  9. 9. Farm development officer Research team Farm reporter Soil testing Seeds testing Fertilizer testing Climatic research Farmers working on monthly wages NATIONALISATION OF FARMING
  10. 10. Investment for collection of land Research equipment cost Man power cost Farm development officer (2.5 lakhs * 50 pa) Research team (12*5 lakhs pa) Farm reporter (1 lakh pa *100) Farmers (2 cr) 4 cr 35 lakhs 4 cr An investment of 8.5 cr from the Government. The land unused land taken up by the Government will be taken up by the norms of land acquisition bill 2013.
  11. 11. Merits over existing model  Plan provides with the curing of malnutrition to the core level.  Due to employment in agricultural sector the reverse process of malnutrition is eradicated.  Use of therapeutic food not just eradicates hunger but also stops malnutrition which is not achieved with the recent plans.  Involvement of private sector is a major challenge.  Investment by the Government is big which may be a challenge.  Acquisition of the unused land will be a crucial problem.  The tight functioning of the plan will be a problem in rural India.  Bringing awareness among doctors to serve in rural areas may be a challenge.
