Micro Nutrient Initiative India :
The mortality rate of children under the age of five is 64 % 1,000 live births down from 118 in 1990, 62% of pre-school children are deficient in Vitamin A, leading to an annual 330,000 child deaths, 9% of children under five are affected disease, 58.7% of pregnant women, 63.2% lactating mothers and 69.5% of pre-school children are anemic, and only 71% of households currently consume adequately iodized salt.
 
MII is working to achieve the following priority objectives :
  • Increase biannual administration of vitamin A syrup to all children 9-59 months in priority states.
  • Expand zinc supplementation along with Oral Rehydration Salts (ORS) for the treatment of childhood diarrhea in priority states.
  • Improve production, monitoring and consumption of iodized salt and provide technical support to salt producers.
  • Introduce and promote the use of double fortified salt (DFS), fortified with iodine and iron, especially through programs that target the most vulnerable.
  • Expant iron and folic acid (IFA) programs for preschool children, adolescent girls, pregnant and lactating women.
  • Support the Indian flour Fortification Network (IFFN) in advocating for wheat flour Fortification, and continue to host its secretariat.
  • Support the Micronutrient Initiative India Trust's (MII) growth and capacity to implement high-quality micronutrient programs in the country.
MI recently secured new grants to support zinc and ORS programming in india and has sustained advocacy efforts. MI is also providing refresher trainning for health care workers and constant messageing and on going supportive supervision for mothers, caregivers and health care workers.
Vitamin A syurp is now reaching 38% of children aged 9 to 59 months in priority states however, the supply chain needs improvement.
 
Yet much work remains to be done. more then half of women and children in india are anemic and the current supply of iron folic acid supplements need to be streamlined. Though 26% diarrhea cases in children are treated with ORS, only 0.3% receives zinc supplements.
Welfare India has currently implemented a programme by the financial support of Micro Nutrient Initiative. It is not only the way to make people aware but it also help them understand about the necessity of vitamins to our body and it also help the people to be conscious about their child's health.
 
Prevention of parents to child transmission
With 27 million pregnancies a year and an overall estimated 0.3% prevalence rate of HIV infection among Pregnant women, it estimated that about 100,000 HIV infected women deliver every year in india.Using a conservative vertical transmission rate of 30%, about 30,000 infants acquire HIV infection each year. The lifespan of a child infected by HIV infection is lower then found in adults. Thus HIV infection may increase e health care expenditure both public and at family level. Increasing number of children infected by HIV have a propensity to alter the mortlality rates Mother to child Transmission (MTCT) is the transmission of HIV virus from mother to child.It is by far the most significant route of transmission of HIV infection in children below the age of 15 years which occurs during pregnancy. during child birth, or breastfeeding.
 
PPTCT programme has been currently implemented with the financial support of GFATM by Welfare India. The progeamme has been running from 1st January 2011.
