National Nutrition Mission was launched last year reflecting its commitment to provide proper nutrition to every mother and children. “If we succeed in delivering the nutrition coverage to every mother, every child, many lives will be saved,” he added.

Talking about Mission Indradhanush Programme, he said that 5 more vaccines have been added to the national programme and added that 3.4 crore children and 90 lakh pregnant women have been immunized so far.
