As part of the Sustainable Development Goal Agenda, the world has committed to ending preventable child deaths by 2030. The prevalence of malnutrition in children worldwide is staggering. According to UNICEF. Malnutrition or malnourishment or undernourishment is a condition that results from eating a diet that has significantly lower essential constituents of food or eating very less food. The vital components may be calories, proteins, vitamins or minerals. Malnutrition triggers an array of health problems in children, many of which are chronic. IIMSAM., along with its Strategic Partner HASH-BIOTECH Labs has been in the forefront of working to control extreme undernourishment by providing therapeutic and supplementary food (Spirulina) to the needy.
