Sahasrahanya 1000 Day Campaign
The continuous care by Tulips means working with women and children from birth to adulthood in order to break the inter-generational cycle of poor health. Nutritional deficiency cuts across all stages along the continuum of care. We ensure they are aware of the health services they need to live a healthy life.
- Prevalence of anaemia in Indian women is highest in the world
- Anaemia and deficiency, diseases among slum dwellers, migrants and marginalized people add to doubling of figures.
- Addressing women’s health between pregnancies up to the child’s second birthday which constitutes (270+365+365 =1000) sets the foundation for the rest of the life that follow.
- Care during pregnancy, infancy, early childhood are potential building blocks for future health
- Identifying, preventing and treating malnutrition
- System strengthening to ensure immunizations and exclusive breastfeeding
- Children of malnourished women are more likely to face cognitive impairments, short stature, lower resistance to infections, and a higher risk of disease and death throughout their lives
