In India, with the launch of the POSHAN Abhiyaan/ Nutrition Mission, efforts to improve maternal nutrition services have gained additional momentum in 2018. Nevertheless, it remains a challenge to ensure universal and equal coverage of interventions as well as to contextualize the nutrition care package for the at risk - mothers suffering from obesity, extreme thinness, with or without depression or anemia, both at the facility level and community. The level of awareness on interventions, strategies and innovations is varied among professional nutritionists and gynecologists.
National Institute of Nutrition (ICMR-NIN) and Federation of Obstetric and Gynecologic society of India (FOGSI), in association with UNICEF is organizing a monthly, technical webinar series “Maternal Nutrition technical E-dialogues” with the theme “Strengthening maternal nutrition assessment and services in antenatal care in India”. The goal is to equip nutritionists, gynecologists and other professionals with the latest maternal nutrition interventions, strategies and innovations.
