The Unfinished Agenda (Modi 1.0): National Nutrition Mission, POSHAN Month and the future of nutrition in India
The POSHAN Abhiyaan is a strategy for addressing India's malnutrition by focusing on under-nutrition by adopting a life-cycle approach.
In India, the share of malnutrition in under-5 mortality continues to be high – it has only come down from 70.4% in 1990 to 68.2% in 2017.
Poshan Abhiyaan was launched last year by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to affirm the government’s commitment towards eradicating all forms of malnutrition.
