Children In Slums Of Mumbai Might be Suffering From Malnutrition

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s (BMC) Health Committee had on Monday and Tuesday organized a medical team and conducted health camps// Chamunda Nagar and Shyam Nagar areas of Bhandup where cases of malnutrition have been reported. Their report has concluded that the children were healthy.

He further stated that the children living in these slums were perfectly healthy and fine, and if the NGO is making any counter claims, that they will have to prove themselves.

BHA have also claimed that their tests were based on the WHO recommended indices of height-for-age, weight-for-age and weight-for-height.

BHA says that now that they can insist that government hospitals admit the children. “The last time we took them to a hospital, they conducted some routine checks and sent them back.
