The micronutrient, health and developmental needs of children must be urgently met to prevent undesirable effects on their growth and development. The grim reality that children die in hundreds, in a day in our country makes us re-think about our policies and programmes on women and child health and development. Schools fail to provide meaningful and life-relevant health education-limiting children’s participation in health promotion. Adolescents available are either not accessible or too obsolete to cope up with their dynamic need.
Whatever health services are available are, either view children as dependent recipients of passive beneficiaries of the system. There is hardly, any scope of participation and action on the part of women and children in them. This situation leaves women and children dependent and vulnerable in the hands of society.
