People for Optimum Social Health and Nutrition (POSHAN)

Impact

Body weight of the new born baby is considered as the most significant indicator to judge the outcome of nutrient supplement to pregnant women.

POSAHN is happy to inform that during the past 18 months since launching its initiative the average body weight of the babies born to the targeted pregnant women has increased from about 2.5 Kg to 3.0 Kg. As per the WHO standard, babies born with less than 2.5Kg weight are considered underweight. 

Over 200 pregnant women are benefitting from POSHAN initiative in Jaipur and over 100 women are benefitting from POSAHN activities in other centres of Rajasthan.
