Food Security


India’s high economic growth rate in the past decade has not been fully reflected in the health status of its people, with 22 per cent of its population undernourished. It is at times assumed that the relationship between economic growth and health is unidirectional with improving economic conditions leading to better health. India bears the ignominy of housing the largest population of malnourished in the world. Awareness of   the prevailing situation in India today and understanding the dimensions   of food security can help drive home this point better. Nothing can bring out the social responsibility role of community radio than the challenge of covering mass deprivation and building a public agenda to overcome massive social deficits on the food and nutrition fronts. Radio Namaskar has been playing a more informative and insightful pro-active role in educating the community on the vital issues at stake and possible solutions.
