Odisha district nutrition profiles

Partnerships and Opportunities to Strengthen and Harmonize Actions for Nutrition in India (POSHAN)
district nutrition profile

POSHAN District Nutrition Profiles (DNPs) draw on diverse sources of data to compile a set of indicators on the state of nutrition and its cross-sectoral determinants. The profiles are intended to be conversation-starters at the district level and to enable discussions about why undernutrition levels are high, and which factors, at multiple levels, might need to be addressed to improve nutrition.

To date POSHAN has developed over 140 nutrition profiles, for districts in Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal.
