Children are vital to the nation’s present and its future. Children’s development is very important for the overall development of society. The best way to develop National human resources is to take care of children. India has the largest child population in the world. All out efforts are being made by the Government for the development and welfare of children. Children’s health needs are also significantly different from those of adults. By nature, children grow and develop at rapid rates, placing them at special risk of being affected by illness and injury. If health problems are not identified and treated, they can affect a child’s cognitive, physical, behavioral, and emotional development. It is therefore essential to identify and treat health conditions early to prevent or minimize the impact on overall growth and development.
In this context,the Mahatma Gandhi Labour Institute is planning to publish a volume on child Health and Nutrition. Volume will provide the conceptual scenario, prevalence and challenges of said themes at different perspective. Volumes are also focusing on the preventive and rehabilitative aspects of the current issues with its administrative and legal community based mechanism.This volume is sponsoring by UNICEF.The audience of this volume is parents, academia, policy makers and practitioners. Moreover, this volume is child specific and having the word limit of 5000 to 7000 in the reference of APA style.
