Kangaroo Mother Unit (KMC) Launched at Cooper Hospital, Mumbai

We are thrilled to announce the launch of Kangaroo Mother Care Unit (KMC) at HBT Medical College & Dr. R. N. Cooper Mun. Gen. Hospital, Mumbai in collaboration with Cooper Hospital. KMC is a method of caring for preterm or low birth-weight infants, involving skin-to-skin contact and exclusive breastfeeding.

The unit was inaugurated by Dr. Shailesh Mohite, Dean of HBT Medical College & Dr. R. N. Cooper Mun. Gen. Hospital Mumbai, and Mr. Ashwini Kakkar, Chairperson of Action Against Hunger. This pilot project has been initiated with the aim of improving the health outcomes for stable, preterm and low birth weight babies and reducing infant mortality.

The 24-hour unit will have trained nurses and doctors from Action Against Hunger India to run the unit, along with counseling sessions for the mothers and follow-up post-discharge of the mother and child.

The goal of Action Against Hunger India is to enhance the health and well-being of infants, ensuring their nutrition, growth, and development, and nurturing them to become the bright future of tomorrow.

Action Against Hunger Joins Generation Nutrition Campaign

Action Against Hunger is delighted to be a member of the Generation Nutrition campaign, an advocacy campaign calling on governments and the international community to take urgent action to prioritize the fight against acute malnutrition and save the lives of millions of children under the age of five.

This campaign brings together a diverse and growing group of civil society organizations who wish to see an end to child deaths from acute malnutrition. The campaign is based on the belief that, with strong political will, our goal of a world free of child deaths from acute malnutrition can be achieved within a generation.

Earlier this year, in Delhi, Action Against Hunger, along with Action Against Hunger, Save the Children, Water Aid and World Vision brought together different stakeholders on a common platform to agree on an “Appeal for action” to urge the Government of India to take action and save the lives of millions of children with severe acute malnutrition.
