The Need

According to the National Family Healthy Survey (India, 2005-06) 46% of the children under the age three are underweight that is too think for their age and 38.4% are stunted, too short for their age. Further, majority of them don’t have adequate access to free health care and monitoring system and are taken to a doctor only in the event of significant onset of symptoms of a health condition or sickness. Tracking a child's growth against the WHO parameters, Svaast solution will give an opportunity for taking up preventive and remedial measures. Moreover, by providing/ suggesting region and culture specific nutritional alternatives, it plans educate parents about nutrition and inform them about different specialists and services available in their area.

Plans are also in the offing to forward this information to Charities and NGOs’ to help fund a free treatment if a family does not have sufficient resources for their child's treatment. The geographical analysis of data will help the interested public health institutions to design region specific prevention programs for affected territories.
