India unlikely to meet ‘Poshan Abhiyaan’ targets, finds study

  • India is unlikely to meet targets set under the ambitious Poshan Abhiyaan or National Nutrition Mission (NNM).
     
  • Poshan Abhiyaan, launched by PM Modi in 2018 was expected to benefit 10 crore people by 2022.
     
  • But we are expected to miss this target for stunting levels of 25% by 9.6%; underweight target of 22.7% by 4.8%.
     
  • Whereas Dr. Vinod K. Paul, Member, NITI Aayog said, "We knew the prevalent levels were slow; the country aspires to make them faster and is making extra efforts to achieve that." 
     
  • The study used all accessible data sources, including national household surveys, multiple dietary and nutrition surveys, and other epidemiological studies, to arrive at its findings.
