Program Description

FMCH has been implementing the Urban Nutrition Initiative at Bhiwandi since 2015. This program ensures that women and children who fall into the category of ‘First 1000 Days’ are linked with their local ICDS (Integrated Child Development Scheme) center, and able to access services.

The services include regular growth monitoring, availability of trusted, accurate information and support from the very first day of detection of pregnancy till the child completes two years of age. Through this program, FMCH works closely with the ICDS system, strengthening the frontline workers towards better implementation of essential nutrition actions as defined by WHO. This includes early registration of pregnancy, complete antenatal care, exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months, adequate and timely complementary feeding from 7 months, ORS treatment during diarrhea and Vitamin A & Iodine supplementation

When you donate to this program, a needy pregnant woman will receive care through her pregnancy till her child is two years old.
