Among the nutrition and health outcomes, the most important is Infant Mortality Rate (IMR). It reflects the health status, socio-economic development and the quality of life of a Country/State/Region. In this respect Andhra Pradesh has still much to achieve. The IMR has reduced from 63 (per 1000 live birth) (SRS-1997) to 41 (SRS-2013) as against the All India decline from 71 (SRS-1997) to 42 (SRS-2013). Moreover, the IMR of the State is much higher than the IMR of Karnataka (32), Tamil Nadu (21), Kerala (12) as per SRS-2013. On the nutrition front, the State has therefore introduced initiatives of Anna Amrutha Hastham (AAH) to reduce incidence of Low Birth Weight; Special care and Supervised feeding for Severely Underweight (SUW)/ Severe Acute malnutrition (SAM) / Moderate Acute Malnutrition (MAM) children under 5 years; Maarpu for making concerted efforts for convergence with allied departments and SHGs and community, apart from making efforts to improve the service delivery.
