Undernutrition has been associated with under-5 mortality and morbidity in developing countries, thus preventing children from reaching their full potential. Additionally, undernutrition among mothers during pregnancy, a prevalent scourge, further increases the burden. Therefore strategies for prevention of maternal, infant and young child undernutrition are a worthwhile long-term investment that would benefit not only children and their families, but also the country as a whole.
A critical component towards improving undernutrition is practicing optimal MIYCAN (Maternal, Infant and Young Child and Adolescent Nutrition). It is important to build capacities of healthcare workers, medical undergraduate and postgraduate students, nursing staff, and those working in the field of public health nutrition to sensitize them towards the importance of MIYCAN, with specific emphasis on breastfeeding, complementary feeding and maternal nutrition, along with effective integration of counselling in service delivery. With this objective, IIPH Delhi has collaborated with IPE Global and Alive & Thrive to launch an eLearning program on MIYCAN which would aid in building capacities in this area of public health.
