Action Research Project – Adilabad, Telangana
Child mortality is often described as a key parameter to measure social and economic progress. In India, despite being one of the fastest growing economies, there has been no visible pattern between per capita income growth and the rate of reduction in child mortality. The problem is exacerbated in the tribal areas of the country where infant mortality and incidence of malnutrition is far greater than the national average. Thousands of crores have been spent every year by the government through various schemes but the results are far from satisfactory.
Action Research project:
In collaboration with the District administration of Adilabad, Telangana, ‘I do’ has initiated an action research project to identify gaps in last mile delivery of services related to pregnant women, lactating mothers and children (below 6 months, 7 months to 36 months and 36 months to 72 months). Based on the field challenges, we provided customized solutions through innovative ideas for addressing the challenges. We also took up implementation, monitoring & evaluation of two innovative ideas.
