Purpose of the guideline
The Department of Women and Child Development, Government of Odisha has approved a
convergent health and nutrition plan for the Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Group (PVTG) to
address the health and nutritional needs of the community. The plan will be implemented in 17
Micro Projects in 12 Districts in the State.
The guideline thus developed presents how to implement different activities envisaged under
the convergent plan for the PVTGs. It presents an overview of the strategy to be adopted by the
Department of Health & FW, DWCD and Dept. of SC & ST Development in addressing the health
and nutritional needs of the PVTGs. The guideline will be useful for the functionaries of Health &
FW and Department of Women &Child Development department at the State, District and SubDistrict level and for the staffs and officers of the SC&ST Development department at the Micro
Project level and at the State level in implementation of the convergent plan.
Background
Odisha has the distinction of having the highest number of PVTGs among all the States and Union
Territories of India. Odisha is home to 62 types of tribes of which 13 tribes are designated as
"Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Groups" for their distinct culture, life style and socio-economic
conditions. Each group constitutes culturally homogeneous segment of the tribal population in
the State. The PVTGs live in remote habitats, in a state of isolation and thus have been able to
conserve their cultural identity which is manifested in their languages, their socio cultural
beliefs, traditions, dance and music. The members of the PVTG community have low level of
literacy, lack development awareness, have declining or stagnant population and use preagricultural level of technology. The habitations of PVTG have inadequate health care facilities
and most of the PVTG household lives in abject poverty. PVT groups are small in number,
differentially developed with respect to one another; live in remote habitat with poor
administrative and infrastructure back up. Their problems and needs are quite different from
others and therefore there is a need for additional programmes and convergent action for the
health and nutrition wellbeing of the PVTGs.
Rationale for Convergent Action Plan
The persistent reasons of undernutrition amongst the PVTGs are manifold and needs a
concerted action not just limited to the DWCD, but action on the determinants of undernutrition
which is related to their economic circumstances, socio-cultural practices and moreover
effective utilisation of the converged health and nutrition programmes and policies for
betterment of the PVTGs.
Economic:
The household level food insecurity is one of the major reasons for existing undernutrition
among the family members as well as of the children in PVTGs. Despite being provided with
subsidised ration through Targeted Public Distribution System (TPDS) and entitlements like
Antyodaya Anna Yojana (AAY), the families find it hard to meet their basic food requirement.
The social and cultural practices in relation to child care are a cause of
concern in PVTGs. Most of the mothers of the PVT community are working and therefore either
take their small children with them or leave them with their older siblings at home for care. On
Social and Cultural:
both the occasions, the feeding of the small child is compromised. Studies on PVTGs indicate to
late initiation of breast feeding, feeding of additional food other than breast feeding during the
first six months and very late initiation of complimentary feeding. The frequency of feeding for
the children as well as adults is very low which leads to high levels of undernutrition in the
community.
Low Uptake of Services: Geographical inaccessibility and inaccessibility due to knowledge
and awareness amongst the PVTGs results in low uptake of the health, nutrition and other
services. Knowledge on health, nutrition and sanitation in the community is found to be
abysmally low.
Policy Environment: Integrated Child Development Services and National Rural Health
Mission are two flagship programmes implemented with greater focus to ensure better health
and nutrition outcome for 0-6 year old children and for the adolescent, pregnant and lactating
mothers. However, the utilisation of the 1CDS and Health services in the PVTG areas are
abysmally low and sometimes the provisions under the schemes are more general in nature
which does not specifically address the health and nutrition needs of the PVTGs. In addition to
the health and nutrition programmes, the SC&ST Development Department runs several
schemes to provide better education, income generation opportunities and hygiene and
sanitation measures in the area. However the reach as well as the utilisation of the services
need further strengthening to have positive impact in the lives of the PVTGs.
Targeted Community
i)
PVTGs living in the 17 Micro Project area identified by the SC&ST Development
Department covering 12 Districts, 20 Blocks, 84 Gram Panchayats and 541 Villages.
ii) The PVTG population to be covered
• 0-6 year old children: 19399
• Male Members : 39761
• Female
: 43047
iii) Under the plan, focused interventions at individual level will be for the PVTGs; however
other community members living in the micro-project area will be benefited from the
community level initiatives.
Objective of the Convergent plan
•
Build capacity of the service providers, community members and members of the local
governance structures for improved health and nutrition services and uptake of
developmental services.
• Address the nutritional requirements of the moderately and severely underweight and
wasted children in the community through additional food supplementation.
• Nutritional status tracking of 0-5 year children.
• Awareness and education for the community members on health, nutrition and child care
practices and schemes in the Micro project area
• Delivery of health services through bi-annual health camps for prevention, management of
diseases and treatment of diseases in referral centres.
• Converge with the SC&ST Development Department and Rural Development Department for
support in livelihoods promotion, safe drinking water, hygiene & sanitation and realization
of entitlements and rights.

In the PVTG villages, children in 0-5 year's age identified in the category of Severely
Malnourished and Severely Acutely Malnourished (through MUAC tape) on any day will be
referred to the nearest Pustikar Diwas (PD) point for further investigations. Subsequent to their
investigations they will be treated at the PD point or will be referred to the nearest NRC for
treatment. The Health& FW department will issue guideline to the Districts that the mothers
taking their children to the PD points on referral on any day are to be provided with the
transportation cost and if referred to the NRC from the PD point are also to be supported with
travel cost.

•
Additional HCM point in inaccessible hamlets through SH Gs
Currently ther' e are 271 Villages and Hamlets in the 17 Micro Projects which are at a distance of
more than 1 Km. from the AWCs. The Children in 3-6 years age are not able to access the AWCs
and therefore are not able to take benefits of the hot cooked meal provided from the AWCs.
There is a need of brining all the children into ICDS fold and serve them with the benefit of hot
cooked meal close to their place of residence. As an alternate strategy, the children not able to
access the hot cooked meal at the AWC at a distance of more than 1 km. will be provided with
the hot cooked meal in their hamlets.
The SHG group of the hamlet will be assigned the task of preparing the hot cooked meal
according to the revised norms and serve it to the children in the age group of 3-6 years in the
hamlet. The SHG members will collect the dry ration from the AWC on a weekly basis.
In order to find out the efficacy of the arrangement, the food supplementation at the hamlets
will be piloted in the farthest hamlets in one GP for 3 months in each Micro Project area and
later on will be scaled up in all hamlets in the micro project area.
In order to ensure that the hot cooked meal is prepared and served to the children, mothers
11
committee as per the prevailing norms of ICDS will be formed in the hamlets and they will be
responsible for overseeing proper implementation of the activity.

Additional food supplementation for Non Sick SAM, MM and NRC discharged children
•
Additional food supplementation along with health and hygiene for children in 6months-5year
has the potential to prevent undernutrition. Therefore in the PVTG area, additional food
supplementation will be provided for the non-sick SAM children (identified through MUAC) and
children who are moderately malnourished and have been discharged from the NRC. The
existing guidelines of DWCD regarding THR for severely malnourished children will be
applicable for the children who are discharged from NRC, Non sick SAM children and
moderately malnourished children in the PVTG area. The children identified through the
growth monitoring process and NRC discharged children will be included for additional
supplementation.

•
BCC tool on nutritive value of commonly available local food, recipes. Counselling and
follow-up for compliance
14
A guidebook for the ASHAs, AWWs and the NGO staff members on nutritive value of locally
available food stuffs will be developed. The guidebook will be used for counselling purpose in
the villages on the Mamata Diwas and also in the NRC for educating mothers.
Through improved practices activity, the PVT families will be provided information on the
nutritive value of the food item that is available in their surrounding and will be encouraged to
use any one of the items which the family does not consume as part of their diet and which the
family can have through own production or can buy with their existing economic
circumstances. The recommendation will be constantly followed up and the family will be
encouraged to include another food item when the first item has been completely integrated to
their food system.
The activity will be spearheaded by the AWW and will be supported by the ASHA and the local
NGO representative.

Increased wage compensation for mothers of children admitted in NRC
•
Most of the mothers in the PVTG area are working mothers and they support and sometimes
are the mainstay for their family income. The low wage compensation of NRC sometimes deters
the mothers to admit their children to the NRC. Therefore the wage compensation for the
mothers in PVTG area be increased to Rs.100*/- so as to motivate the mothers to admit their
children to the NRC and stay for the period of treatment. The wage compensation provided will
be in addition to the food cost that is provided to the mothers when their child is admitted to
the NRC.

• Weekly follow-up of NRC discharged children in the community
The children discharged from the NRC are mostly regain their appetite and are in a situation of
returning to their growth trajectory. Therefore there is a need of keeping constant vigil on such
children so that they don't fall back to their earlier condition. Therefore the ASHA and the AWW
of the village will do a weekly weighing of the children on the lines of SM children. If the child's
growth is found to be going down, they will be immediately referred to the PD point for further
diagnosis and treatment.

nutrition situation
•
Bi-Annual Health Camps:
The health needs of the PVTGs will be addressed by mobilising them to attend Bi-Annual health
camps to be organised in convergence with the health department. The PVTGs residing in 84
GPs under 17 Micro projects will be covered through 168 bi-annual health camps. Two health
camps will be organised in each GP and the venue will be at the sub-GP level, preferably a
bigger village or any place that is easily accessible by the PVTGs residing in the fringe areas.
The health camps will be organised as per the micro plan prepared by health department and
the same will be shared with the Micro Projects. The Micro Project of the area will be the
administrative unit and the BPMU of Health Dept. along with the DPMU of DWCD will be the
coordinating agency. The Nodal NGO of the SC & ST Development Dept. will be responsible for
16
community mobilisation.
The camp dates should not be on the VHN days for the same village. The camp date and day will
be disseminated in the villages to be covered by the health camp. The human resources for the
camp such as Doctors, nurses, paramedics and all logistics such as medicine, consumables will
be from the health department (as per the tribal health camp guideline). The AWW, ASHA and
the ANM of the village will assist in organisation and smooth conduct of the camp. The camp
will be open for all the residents in the micro project area, however special focus will be on the
women and children from the PVT community.
Children covered in the health camps and found to be in severely wasted category or having
bipedal oedema will be directly referred to the nearest NRC or the paediatric ward of the
nearest PHC/CHC/DH.
Services to be provided in the Health Camps:
Clinical Examination by Doctor/Skilled Nurse for all the attendees of the camp for
illnesses and provision of drugs for the ailments.
- Referral of the patients to higher up institutions.
Services for the 0-5 year children
Growth Monitoring and Counselling, Referral of severely wasted children with
infections to the NRC/ Paediatric ward of CHC/ DHH.
Blood Test for Malaria for all the severely underweight and severely wasted children
and treatment for the positive cases.
Haemoglobin tests for children and IFA supplementation, de-worming and Vitamin A
Supplementation on a case to case basis.
The camp in the PVTG area will be useful for children to be treated for Malaria, ARI,
Diarrhoea and other ailments. This will also help to reduce undernutrition and decrease the
risk of death due to undernutrition and illnesses.
The camp will help the system to authenticate community data on point of prevalence of
Malaria Parasites and Anaemia which can be disaggregated by age, gender, village etc. This
will also provide authentic information on the nutritional status of children and if the camps
are repeated annually around the same date, this data will then provide trends across time, to
show if the situation is actually improving or not in the PVTG area.

• Vocational training for Adolescents on market linked skills
The mean age at marriage in tribal area is low and is great a contributor to low birth weight and
thereby under nutrition. Therefore, if the marriage can be delayed in the area by engaging the
adolescents in some income generating activities the problem of undernutrition can be
addressed to a great extent. Vocational trainings will be arranged for the adolescent girls so that
they take up market linked vocations and supplement to their family income. The trainings
could be conducted in partnership with the Handicraft and Cottage Industries Dept. /Jan Sikhya

1. Capacity Building of all NGO staffs , Frontline workers of all departments on rights
based approach and on programmes and policies
•
Rights Based orientation and training on programmes and policies for PVTG area
The plan for implementation is a convergent plan and services to be provided in the PVTG area
cuts across different departments. Therefore there is a need to orient the service providers
across departments, NGO functionaries on the programme and policies implemented in the
PVTG area.
Besides there is a need for orienting the service providers to work in rights based approach in
the PVTG area.

3. Additional institutions on need for universal coverage
New AWCs and Health Sub -Centres in the PVTG area
•
Although under the universalization of services, AWCs and Health Sub centres have been
established, still there is a need to have institutions close to community to further the process
of inclusion. In the PVTG area, the hamlets are dispersed and there are physical barriers for
children to access the services of ICDS. Therefore mapping for opening of new institutions will
be done by the Nodal NGO and appropriate approval will be sought from Government of India
to open new AWCs in the PVTG area.

The implementation of the PVTG Scheme will be reviewed at the State level in the
review meetings of OTELP of Dept. of SC & ST.
•
Process monitoring by the DSWO, CDPO, MO I/C , SO of Micro Project and DPMU staffs
The plan for implementation is a convergent plan and in implementation of the plan
several agencies are involved. Therefore monitoring and supervision of the plan is of
paramount importance. The PVTG area is administered by Special Officers of Micro Projects
and therefore SO of Micro project will be the nodal person for monitoring of the activities
implemented in the field. He will be ably supported by the DPMU team, CDPO of WCD
department and the BPMU team of NRHM and CHC/PHC In charge in monitoring of the
activities.
24
• Monthly review by Collector of the PVTG initiatives
The convergent plan implemented in the PVTG area will be reviewed at the District level by the
District Collector once in a month. Difficulties in implementation of the plan and progress of the
plan will be discussed in the meeting. Financial and administrative constraints related to
implementation of the plan will be resolved in district meeting. The meeting will be attended by
all the implementing organisations and will be convened by the WCD department of the
District.
•
Bi-Monthly review of DPMU, Special Officers, CDPOs of the PVTG areas
Bi-monthly review under the chairmanship of Director, Social Welfare will be conducted at the
State level for review of the activities implemented in PVTG area. The Director, SC& ST Dept.,
Mission Director, NRHM, Director, Panchayati Raj will attend review meeting. The Special
Officers of the Micro Project, DPMU staff members and CDPOs working in the PVTG area will
present the progress of activities in the meeting and further plan will be developed for
improving the nutritional status in the PVTG area.
•
Mobility support for the DPMU/Districts
Continuous monitoring of the ICDS schemes in the PVTG area is essential for delivery of
services. Through the monitoring gaps in service delivery could be identified and corrected for
better results. The DPMU team at the District level are undertaking weekly visit to the PVTG
area to provide support in implementation of the special plan and also for the on-going
activities under ICDS. Similarly, funds will be made available for the District authorities where
there is a micro project for weekly visit to see the progress of activities.
