National Health Mission
Government of Rajasthan
Upon completion of phase 1 of the project in June 2016, more than 95% of the 9640 children
enrolled for this treatment have been discharged upon recovery and are successfully on the road to
good health. There have been less than 0.3% deaths and around 2.5% children could not recover,
which is below the global acceptable limits for similar programmes. The results also show that 12%
more girls were enrolled for treatment than boys, which is generally the opposite within public
health services, indicating a community-based approach can successfully improve the health and
wellbeing of young girls who may have otherwise been excluded from this treatment.
The (CMAM) project is the single largest community-based intervention implemented by a state
government in India. Over 2’500 government frontline workers and community volunteers are
involved in the intervention.
Based on the success of this first phase, the Government of Rajasthan plans to scale up the
intervention to more districts with the aim to reach 25’000 children. The CMAM programme is one
of several programmes under the NHM which will continue to improve the lives of malnourished
children in Rajasthan.
