Maharashtra has one of the highest malnourishment rates in the country. Nearly half of all deaths in children under 5 years are attributable to undernourishment. In spite of the ICDS programme, India has one of the highest malnourishment rates in children globally. In rural India, the issue of malnutrition is compounded by the socioeconomic challenges faced by the community. Through Project Poshan, United Way Mumbai is working in partnership with the Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS) in rural and urban communities, to fight malnutrition.
