As we look towards a future where all children can grow up healthy and strong with adequate nutrition, it is crucial that we invest in research, evidence, data and knowledge management as critical components for the development of effective policies and programmes. This publication list comprises of UNICEF Nutrition supported evidence-related reports and papers published in journals and elsewhere during the UNICEF India Country Programme 2018 to 2022. Most of these are co-authored by staff from UNICEF India.

Maternal and child malnutrition remains a significant public health challenge in India, with severe consequences for both individuals and society as a whole. Through rigorous research and data analysis, we can gain a deeper understanding of the underlying causes and drivers of malnutrition and develop targeted and evidence-based interventions to address them.

The papers and reports in this publication list cover a wide range of topics, including on the nutrition situation of women and children and the causes of the various forms of malnutrition in India, and review of nutrition interventions on maternal and child nutrition. The importance of research and data-driven insights cannot be overstated. It allows us to track progress, identify gaps, and measure the impact of our interventions. It also helps us to target our efforts and resources more effectively, ensuring that we are reaching those who are most in need. These papers demonstrate the breadth and depth of the research and evidence work supported by UNICEF India in relation to maternal and child malnutrition in India. It represents work of government, academia, development partners, and UNICEF, who have come together to contribute to the collective effort to improve the evidence base in support of strengthening the response to promote maternal and child nutrition in India. It is through this collaboration and the sharing of knowledge and expertise that we can make the most progress in getting to evidence informed high impact nutrition responses.

With continuous generation and dissemination of evidence-based knowledge, we can truly make a difference in the lives of mothers and children in India. The papers and reports in this publication list present cutting-edge research and innovative solutions that are needed to address the complex and multifaceted problem of malnutrition.

We hope that this publication list will serve as a valuable resource for policy makers, practitioners, and researchers working to improve maternal and child nutrition in India. We also hope that it will inspire all stakeholders to continue to support and invest in research, evidence, data, and knowledge management as critical components for the development of high impact policies and programs to address maternal and child malnutrition in India.

We must also continue to work together, bringing together the expertise and resources of government, academia, and development partners, including UNICEF, to achieve our common goal of a healthier and more prosperous future for all mothers and children in India.
