HYDERABAD: State Minister for Tribal and Women and Child Welfare Satyavathi Rathod, on Thursday, said that as part of the Total Health Telangana initiative, the department is preparing an outstanding plan to completely eliminate malnutrition among women and infants in the State.  

During a review meeting that was held at the Ministry of Women Development and Child Welfare office, Satyavathi Rathore said that recent surveys had revealed that malnutrition among pregnant and postpartum women had seen a decrease due to the implementation of Aarogya Lakshmi scheme.

At present, there are about 1,049 girls for every 1,000 boys in Telangana. Stating that to reduce stunting among children, additional measures would be taken. All the good schemes for babies in the country will be studied and implemented in Telangana, said the Minister.
