Bangle Programme In Bihar To Check Malnutrition In Women
Malnutrition is a growing cause of concern in rural areas of the country. To tackle the problem in Bihar, a pilot project has been launched by Jeevika, a rural livelihood programme, with technical assistance from Unicef. The project includes a mid-arm bangle with a 23 cm circumference that women will have to wear. This bangle will tell health workers if a woman is healthy or malnourished by the fit of the bangle.
