Future Health Systems is a research consortium working to improve access, affordability and quality of health services for the poor. We are a partnership of leading research institutes from across the globe working in a variety of contexts: in low-income countries (Bangladesh, Uganda), middle-income countries (China, India) and fragile states (Afghanistan) to build resilient health systems for the future. After a successful first five-year phase from 2006-2011 (see our success stories), we are entering a new six-year phase of research, funded mainly by UK aid.

Leading Indian newspaper takes note: 50% children in Sunderbans malnourished

Future Health Systems

Following a report issued by FHS India, the Stateman, one of India's oldest English language newspapers reported on the dire health situation facing both children and adults in remote parts of the Sundarbans. According to the article:

About half of the children in the Sunderbans, about 52 per cent, were either stunted or suffering from chronic malnutrition. The proportion of chronically malnutritioned children was higher than both the state [of West Bengal] and the national percentage of 45 and 48 per cent, respectively, implying that in the Sunderbans, a comparatively higher proportion of the children are growing up with serious nutritional retardation.

The article also notes higher incidence of fever and diarrhoea among children, and chronic diseases like heart disease and arthritis among adults.
