GS-II: India’s Child Well-being Report

Context

India’s Child Well-being Index was recently released.

India’s Child Well-being Report

  • The India child well-being index is a crucial report that can be mined both by the Government and civil organisations to achieve the goal of child well-being and we will use this report effectively.
  • The report is released by the NGO World Vision India and research institute IFMR LEAD.
  • One of the primary objectives of this index is to garner attention to the under-researched theme of child well-being in India, and inspire further academic and policy conversations on related issues.
  • This report provides insights on health, nutrition, education, and sanitation and child protection.
  • The report is an attempt to look at how India fairs on child well-being using a composite child well-being index.

Performance States:

Kerala , Tamil Nadu and Himachal Pradesh bagged the top three slots in the index. Meghalaya , Jharkhand , and Madhya Pradesh featured at the bottom, the index said.

Indicators

Focusing on the three key dimensions, 24 indicators were selected to develop the computation of the child well-being index. The index captures the performance of each state and union territory on a composite child well-being score.

Way Ahead

The report also emphasised triggering policy level changes, seeking better budgetary allocations and initiating discussions with all stakeholders which can help in enhancing the quality of life of all children in the country.
