      Coming to community activities, the Consolidated Reply of the discussion on Inputs for the State Human Development Report for Bihar was shared with the Department of Planning & Development in the Government of Bihar. To take the deliberations forward, the department plans to conduct a workshop. Thanks once again for your inputs.
      This month, the community completed two discussions – one on Payment of Incentives to ASHA - Bottlenecks & Good Practices and other one on Proposed Criteria for Setting- Up New           PHCs in Gujarat. We thank members for their informative responses on both the topics.

      The 2012 edition of the Child Development Index tells a story of success. The edition shows that substantial progress has been made in addressing the most basic threats to child survival and well-being. On average, the lives of children around the world in the indicators measured improved by more than 30%. This means that the chances of a child going to school were one-third higher, and the chances of an infant dying before their fifth birthday were one-third lower at the end of the 2000s than a decade before. Overall, during this period child well-being improved in 90% of the countries surveyed.
      From Meenakshi Aggarwal , MCH Community
      The report is an urgent call for greater commitment, attention and concerted global action on behalf of the most vulnerable children.
