Impact Incidents of Malnutrition in 1000 Villages of Tribal Odisha
Area of Intervention: Kandhamal District, Odisha, India
Keywords:Malnutrition, Tribals, Atmashakti Trust, Nutrition Kitchen Garden, Health Kit, Safe Drinking Water, Swastha Sathi
We are tackling the problem of malnutrition by addressing multiple contributing factors instead of the most common approach focusing on nutrition and health. We recognize malnutrition as a multi-dimensional problem, with the principal contributing factors being poverty, lack of a balanced nutritious diet, inadequate maternal and infant health nutrition, poor sanitation and environmental conditions, and minimal access to essential healthcare services. Another unique aspect of our intervention has been the facilitation of around 500 Health Kits at the village/hamlet level. This makes simple medicines for common ailments available for vulnerable people whose nearest access to treatment could be 10-15 km (6-9 miles) distant.
