Union Cabinet approves setting up of National Nutrition Mission

About National Nutrition Mission (NNM)
• The Union Cabinet on 30 November 2017 approved the setting up of National Nutrition Mission (NNM) with a three year budget of Rs 9046.17 crore.

• The mission will be partly funded by Government Budgetary Support (50 per cent) and the remaining 50 per cent by IBRD or other MDB.

• The mission will be rolled out in three phases from 2017-18 to 2019-20.

• It aims to ensure holistic development and adequate nutrition for pregnant women, mothers and children.

• It targets to reduce the level of stunting, under-nutrition, anaemia and low birth rate.

• It will create synergy, ensure better monitoring, issue alerts for timely action and encourage the states to perform and supervise the mission in order to achieve the targeted goals.

• There are plenty of schemes on improving the nutritional status, however, there is a lack of synergy between them. The National Nutrition Mission through strong convergence mechanism will strive to create the synergy.
