New Delhi, Sep 11: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will interact with the ASHA and Anganwadi workers and health beneficiaries via video conference this morning, as part of Poshan-Maah. Poshan Maah, the month devoted to nutrition, is being celebrated this September with an aim to reach every household in the country with the message of the importance of optimum nutrition.

The initiative will further strengthen the objectives of Poshan Abhiyaan, the National Nutrition Mission, set up by the Government last November. Under POSHAN Abhiyaan, the Government has fixed targets to reduce stunting, under-nutrition, anemia among young children, women and adolescent girls, and reduce low birth weight by 2 to 3 per cent per annum.

The Prime Minister’s interaction will bring together various stakeholders involved in the mission. It will also become a platform for sharing and dissemination of success stories in the area of nutrition.
