Better Preventive and Curative Health Care

India's health indicators are not improving as fast as other socio-economic indicators. Good healthcare is perceived to be either unavailable or unaffordable. How can we improve healthcare conditions, both curative and preventive, especially relating to women and children?

ICDS need to reposition it self, and provide a strong infrastructure for nutrition services as a guarantee with a worker at family level , supervision at block level and specialist at district level. Needless to say there should be an overarching body at national level to provide guidance and evaluate the nutrition programmes as well as serve as a clearinghouse.

I have suggested that the cycle of nutrition starts from breast feeding to the babies, weaning, feeding a child 0-3 years and taking care for growth and development which goes beyond just weigh and height for age. ICDS is only a part of this cycle both in the age cycle as well as the daily cycle. There should be an repositioning of ICDS as a preschool day care center.

ICDS workers beyond supplementary food distribution should refocus on assessing child's growth and development. BCC for early breast feeding, breast feeding skill transfer, crawling and feeding skills (handing over a piece of roti is not feeding!) to the child carers.

A child development centre for moderate acute malnourished children should be brought back to the community rather than PHC. This ensures that the family is made aware of its responsibility in child care and be a forum for skill trasnfer, peer education.
