Mission Utkarsh

Mission Utkarsh:

The Ministry of Ayush and the Ministry of Women and Child Development have partnered to enhance the nutrition of adolescent girls through Ayurveda interventions as a part of Mission Utkarsh.

  • Under Mission Utkarsh, 15 central ministries or departments will work to elevate districts at the bottom, to state and national averages.
  • In the first phase, the focus may be on improving the anaemic status of adolescent girls (14-18 years) in five aspirational districts of five states namely Assam (Dhubri), Chhattisgarh (Bastar), Jharkhand (Paschimi Singhbhum), Maharashtra (Gadchiroli), and Rajasthan (Dhaulpur).
  • The objective is to combat anaemia and work towards achieving an “Anaemia Mukt Bharat” (Anaemia Free India).
  • Anaemia is a medical condition characterised by a deficiency of red blood cells or haemoglobin in the blood, leading to reduced oxygen-carrying capacity
