 The prevalence of undernutrition in India is highest in Madhya Pradesh and is one of the main causes of having high IMR (67) and U5MR (89) [AHS 2010-11]. To achieve the Millennium Development Goal 4, which aims at reducing the nation’s IMR by two-thirds, there is a need to focus on the states which have a large number of malnourished children. Facility based-management of children with SAM (F-SAM), and Community Based-Management of children with SAM (C-SAM) training materials were to be developed to this effect for Madhya Pradesh.
