What are the problems faced and gaps in the health and nutrition status of the focus areas?

In Gujarat, the prevalence of anaemia among children aged 6-59 months is 79.7%, which is higher than the national average of 67.1%. This trend is also observed in the Dang and Navsari districts, where the prevalence of anaemia is 82.4% and 75.3%, respectively (according to NFHS 5 data).

The adolescent group has the highest prevalence of anaemia, with 77% of adolescent girls in The Dang and 72% in Navsari being anaemic, which is unacceptable. Therefore, it is crucial to focus on adolescents, especially females, to break the life cycle of malnutrition.
