Evaluating Nutritional Outcomes and Progress: A Comprehensive Analysis of a National Nutritional Surveillance System in India

Jagruti Nanda | Dharmashree Satyarup | Priyanca Panigrahi

Abstract: The welfare of a population is impacted by health and nutrition outcomes, which are given the most weight in the indicators chosen to gauge the country's and the children's progress. One of the main objectives of the administration is to ensure uniform development across the entire nation. Children's nutritional status is evaluated using anthropometric and clinical assessments as well as surveys about food and nutrient intakes to determine whether they are stunted, wasted, or underweight. Although the Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS) of the government of Odisha has a strong track record for innovation, the rate of undernutrition has barely changed since then. In India, undernutrition among children under five has decreased dramatically over the past 10 to 15 years, but it is still a problem in a number of states, including Odisha. Therefore, the main goal of this nutritional surveillance system is to consistently build a reliable database on the nutritional status of communities based on systematic surveys conducted by adopting statistically valid sampling designs and using uniform standard methodologies across all States including all the vulnerable remote areas and tribes.
