Close to 1.3 million children die every year in India because of malnutrition, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Ninety nine per cent of all under-five deaths occur in developing countries, with the most common causes of death being pneumonia, diarrhea and malaria. These are illnesses to which children are particularly vulnerable, especially when they are malnourished, a condition that weakens their immune systems. Malnutrition contributes to more than a third of all child deaths. Worldwide, over 100 million children are underweight. More than half of under-five child deaths are due to diseases that are preventable and treatable through simple, affordable interventions. About 45% of all child deaths are linked to malnutrition.
My innovation is a sensor band based on IOT and CLOUD COMPUTING. The sensor band if worn by the kids continously analyzes the health facts and based on cloud computing the data are continously monitored and analyzed. Any event of abnormalities in health are signalled to concerned persons immediately. (EG.NGOS s)
