NITI Aayog, in partnership with Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Centre for Social and Behaviour Change, Ashoka University has launched Poshan Gyan, a national digital repository on health and nutrition.
“The creation of Poshan Gyan was a landmark moment. The real change can be brought about only through changing behaviours on the ground. The high malnutrition persists despite India being a food-surplus nation, which points towards a clear need for behavioural change,” NITI Aayog Vice Chairman Dr Rajiv Kumar said.
The launch event was addressed by NITI Aayog Vice-Chairman Dr Rajiv Kumar, CEO Amitabh Kant, Women and Child Development Secretary Ram Mohan Mishra and Additional Secretary Dr Rakesh Sarwal.
