Description

Factors associated with undernutrition in Indian children under five - A Literature Review Introduction: Undernutrition in children contributes to the burden of childhood and adult onset diseases. In India, multiple studies have identified varied factors associated with childhood undernutrition. A comprehensive review of these factors to identify the drivers of childhood malnutrition would help policy makers and researchers to strategize their programme planning and implementation. The present literature review aims to collate these factors that are associated with undernutrition in young Indian children. Methods: A comprehensive literature search was performed using two databases i.e. PubMed and Web of Science from January 2015 to August 2020. The prevalence of undernutrition among Indian children from the primary studies conducted from various parts of the country was collated. In addition, the factors associated with undernutrition (categorized into proximal, intermediate and distal factors) using the Integrated Life Course and Social Determinants of Aboriginal Health (ILCSDAH) model was collated and analysed. Results: A total of 22 studies reported the prevalence of growth failure in children
