The Intergenerational Cycle of Malnutrition and Ill-health

In the interview Anushree says that malnutrition in the early years and inter-generational cycle of malnutrition leads to adolescent malnutrition in India. Data related to adolescent malnutrition is lacking in India and there is a need to include them in nutrition surveillance. Awareness about the policies among illiterate people is very important. She emphasises that India needs a multi-sector nutrition policy which is adequate and accountable.
