ORDER
  • The Government have reviewed the existing nutrition program and observed that the key malnutrition indicators (as per National Family Health Survey-4, 2015-16), i.e., Underweight (low weight for age); Wasting (low weight for height) in children below 5 years age; Anaemia (<11.0 g/dl) in women aged 15-49 are significantly high in Srikakulam (71.8%), Vizianagaram (75.5%), Visakhapatnam (66.4%), East Godavari (64.6%). The other nutritional indicators viz., dietary diversity and consumption of age specific diet are minimal in Tribal Mandals. Malnutrition and Anaemia are also significantly high in Primitive Tribal Groups (Chenchu) of Guntur, Prakasam and Kurnool districts. The incidence of under-nutrition in tribal population is mainly due to:
  • poverty and persistent under-nutrition
  • lack of knowledge impacting nutrition and health seeking behavior due to geographical remoteness.
  • poor environmental sanitation and lack of safe drinking water, leading to increased morbidity
  • 2 . The need for focused approach in Tribal areas is identified by the Government departments, NITI Ayog and technical partners like UNICEF, NIN, The World Bank, CARE India, etc.
  • i. Planning department has identified 30 lowest performing mandals in terms of nutrition, health, anaemia, socio economic, water and sanitation, hygiene parameters, households with safe cooking practices etc and all these identified 30 mandals are in the scheduled & sub plan mandals of 7 ITDAs
  • ii. The NITI Ayog suggested to focus on essential nutrition to pregnant and lactating women, children during the ‘first 1000 days’ (from conception to lactation, up to 2 years of child age) of child’s life is identified as the window of opportunity to reduce under-nutrition among the children as well addressing anaemia among women and children. NITI Ayog has also made a suggestion to ensure nutritional standards are met by making minerals and vitamins available in the food
  • iii. Children from scheduled tribes, the poorest households, rural areas, and whose mother had little or no education are the worst affected.
  • iv. Practices in diet diversity, knowledge about nutrition for children and women, health care, nutrition practices at home; nutrition and health behaviors during ‘first 1000 days’ (from conception to lactation, up to 2 years of child age) are also very minimal in these mandals
  • v. Food consumption pattern in tribal dominant area varies as per the availability of food, local resources and hence often lacks in adequacy in terms of caloric and protein requirement and sufficiency in terms of dietary diversity
  • 3. Government, after careful examination of the matter, have decided to provide additional nutrition supplementation (irrespective of the nutritional status) at the proposed cost to all Children aged 6-36 months, Children aged 36-72 months and all Pregnant Women and Lactating Mothers enrolled in 77 Scheduled and Tribal sub plan mandals spread over 7 Integrated Tribal Development Agency (ITDAs) of Sitampeta, Parvatipuram, Paderu, Rampachodavaram, Chinturu, K.R.Puram and Srisailam and 8 districts in the State, as the proposed 77 mandals have high burden of malnutrition and anaemia. The Government has also decided to implement the above said program under the name of “Y.S.R. Sampurna Poshana”.
  • 4. Accordingly, Government hereby accord permission to the Director, WD&CW, Guntur for providing additional nutrition supplementation (irrespective of the nutritional status) at the proposed cost to all Children aged 6-36 months, Children aged 36-72 months and all Pregnant Women and Lactating Mothers enrolled in 77 Scheduled and Tribal sub plan mandals spread over 7 Integrated Tribal Development Agency (ITDAs) of Sitampeta, Parvatipuram, Paderu, Rampachodavaram, Chinturu, K.R.Puram and Srisailam and 8 districts in the State under “Y.S.R.
