Malnutrition in India has been called ‘The Silent Emergency’. The proportion of undernutrition among children and women in India is one of the highest in the world. In spite of unprecedented economic growth, improvements in childhood nutritional status in India over the last decade has been slow. Suboptimal infant and young child feeding practices in particular continue to be a serious challenge to reducing malnutrition among children. High rates of maternal undernutrition measured by low body mass index and anaemia adversely affect the health and survival of mothers and newborns. Further, chronic malnutrition in early years of life is responsible for widespread stunting and adverse health and social consequences throughout the lifespan. Community based approaches have been the mainstay of interventions to address the problem of maternal and child malnutrition in developing societies. Community based care delivered through health care workers like anganwadi workers, (AWW), auxillary nurse midwives (ANM) and accredited social health activists (ASHA), can have a vital impact on maternal and child health and nutritional status. However, there is an urgent need to facilitate proper training and handholding of frontline workers, their supervisors and their managers to empower them with knowledge, appropriate skills and motivation to serve the community. In pursuance to national policy for children in India, ICDS (Integrated Child Development Services) under the Ministry of Women and Child Development was launched in 1975. With its workforce of anganwadi workers (AWW), ICDS is a comprehensive scheme of Government of India and aims at enhancing survival and development of children. In spite of a well conceptualized program, systematic weaknesses, logistical gaps, resource scarcity, and poor utilization continue to hamper progress and affect the outcome of the program. This eCourse aims to update current knowledge, strengthen the technical capacity on reproductive and child health nutrition and enhance the managerial skills of the service providers and officials working under the ICDS program.

Epidemiology is a cornerstone discipline in public health. It is the foundation on which public health decisions are made, implemented and evaluated. Epidemiology also serves as the tool for identifying the risks, determining the relationships, estimating the burden of disease, identifying and instituting appropriate prevention and control measures and finally evaluating the public health decisions. The capacity building of a critical mass of public health professionals and epidemiologists is essential to skillfully assess the dimensions of public health issues, determine appropriate strategies to meet emerging challenges and apply such knowledge to improve the health of the people by empowering public health programs and influencing policy decisions in the health and allied sectors. The eLearning program envisioned by Public Health Foundation of India is particularly suited for healthcare professionals already working with health system and engaged in delivery of health services but have limited access to higher education because of personal or professional reasons.
