Thanks to the Dettol BSI Nutrition India Programme, the community saw a 7.4% decrease in the proportion of severely acute malnourished children across the districts of Amravati and Nandurbar in the Indian state of Maharashtra.

The initiative saved the lives of about 6,500 children aged between 1 and 5 with the help of community nutrition workers within the first 10 months.

An independent assesment by Sustainable Square also revealed that “every one rupee” invested in the BSI Nutrition India Programme delivers a “social value” of nearly Rs 36.90.

The programme has been developed to support the first 1,000 days of a child’s life, using AI-based innovative modules, to bolster the health, hygiene and nutrition status of pregnant women as well as children.
