NITI Aayog Initiates New Nutrition Strategy Development
Nov 17, 2015

The first consultation to evolve a national Nutrition Strategy was held in NITI Aayog recently.

  • Mandated to analyse the emerging data on undernutrition and formulate a specific strategy for poorly performing states and districts, in consultation with the Ministries of Women and Child Development and Health and Family Welfare, NITI Aayog anchored this milestone meeting.

  • This was the first in a series of consultations, designed to include states, sectoral ministries and other stakeholders including experts, professional bodies, international agencies, voluntary agencies and community based organizations.

  • NITI Aayog has been tasked with preparing the draft Nutrition Strategy by the end of December 2015, in consultation with both the concerned ministries, sectoral experts, States and other relevant stakeholders.

  • It was decided that an Inter-Ministerial Group on Health and Nutrition Data will also be constituted, to identify the focus districts and finalize recommendations for monitoring and tracking progress of the Nutrition Strategy.
