About The Project

The study was designed to assess children’s household food consumption patterns and nutritional status using anthropometric measures in selected Anganwadi centers of Bangalore. Multi-Stage Stratified Random sampling design was adopted for the study. All 40 Anganwadi centres in Dommansandra, Bellandur, and Mandur Village were selected first. Secondly, all the children in the Anganwadi centres were selected to assess their nutritional status, and 35% of the children households (ensured to cover an equal number of boys and girls) were selected by adopting random sampling to survey and collect information about household consumption patterns. This baseline study aims to assess the household consumption pattern and establish the nutritional status of children enrolled in Anganwadi in 3 villages using anthropometric measures. The baseline study results formed the basis for the impact analysis of the nutrition/dietary habits intervention programme planned by United Way in the community.

About The Project

The baseline objective was to understand the current health status and practices related to health services utilization, the household profile, socioeconomic status, prevalent common/minor illness, infectious diseases, non-communicable diseases, antenatal care, delivery, and postnatal care services. The baseline also focussed on collecting data on the utilization of ICDs services, wash practices and out-of-pocket expenditure, and preferred healthcare providers by the households for treatment. Piramal Swasthya supported the assessment at the identified programme locations of India, Mysore (Karnataka), Patancheru (Telangana), Vishakhapatnam (Andhra Pradesh), Khandala (Maharashtra), and Kasna (Uttar Pradesh). Piramal Swasthya, in partnership with Asian Paints Limited, is to deliver primary health care services in these locations. The research study results provided inputs for types of services, locations, and modalities for the clinics and mobile clinics.
