INTEGRATED CHILD DEVELOPMENT SERVICES SCHEME

Introduction
Having realized the utmost urgency and importance of giving highest priority to develop human resources, the Government of India found it most essential to evolve a national programme for the overall development of children. The result of this concern is the emergence of a national programme called Integrated Child Development Services Scheme in the year 1975, with a modest coverage of 33 projects in the country with one pilot project at T. Narsipur in Karnataka, which has been expanded to cover all the taluks in the State. The welfare of pregnant and nursing mothers and children below 6 years has acquired a prime place in the programme.

OBJECTIVES OF THE SCHEME

Nutrition

• Benefits of breast feeding
Breast milk is far more than a source of nutrition. It promotes the health and well-being of both mother and baby. It is best to keep the infant on a strict diet of only breast milk for the first six months of his/ her life.
• Feeding Infants and Young Children During and After Illness
A child who is sick will have little or no appetite or anorexia can contribute to a vicious cycle of illness and malnutrition that can be dangerous for a child below two years. It seen that, during illness a child may be too weak to eat, have trouble swallowing, or find it difficult to breastfeed because of a cough or blocked nose. Inefficient absorption of nutrients, loss of energy stores, and dehydration due to vomiting or diarrhea must be overcome. Even during a short illness, child growth often falters.

Immunization

Immunization is the process whereby a person is made immune or resistant to an infectious disease, typically by the administration of a vaccine. Vaccines stimulate the body’s own immune system to protect the person against subsequent infection or disease.
Immunization is a proven tool for controlling and eliminating life-threatening infectious diseases and is estimated to avert between 2 and 3 million deaths each year. It is one of the most cost-effective health investments, with proven strategies that make it accessible to even the most hard-to-reach and vulnerable populations. It has clearly defined target groups; it can be delivered effectively through outreach activities; and vaccination does not require any major lifestyle change.
