In this IssueLetter from the Moderator | Featured Publication | Upcoming Events | Resource Corner | Network ActivityDear friends,Greetings from Solution Exchange!The MCH Community had a flying start in the new year. The first discussion of 2012 on Universalisation of Double Fortified Salt received a very enthusiastic response from the community members. I would like to thank all the members for taking interest and sending their inputs on this query.Later in the month, the Guidelines for Mother & Baby Friendly Health Services were put up for discussion. The consultation received few but very useful inputs from the members. A special thanks to all those who contributed. A dissemination meeting is planned for 20th February, 2012 to formalise these guidelines.The month of January also witnessed the release of HUNGaMA (Hunger and Malnutrition) Report – 2011 by the honourable Prime Minister. The survey was undertaken across 100 focus districts and interviewed 74,020 mothers and measured 109,093 children in 4 months. One of the major findings of the survey was reduction in prevalence of child underweight from 53 percent (DLHS, 2004) to 42 percent in the 100 focus districts. You may access the full report here.The raw data for the Coverage Evaluation Survey done by UNICEF in 2009 is now accessible. The details of these are provided in a separate section in the update.
