Malnutrition increases the risk of infection and infectious disease, and moderate malnutrition weakens every part of the immune system. For example, it is a major risk factor in the onset of active tuberculosis.Protein and energy malnutrition and deficiencies of specific micronutrients (including iron, zinc, and vitamins) increase susceptibility to infection. Malnutrition affects HIV transmission by increasing the risk of transmission from mother to child and also increasing replication of the virus. In communities or areas that lack access to safe drinking water, these additional health risks present a critical problem.

India is currently bearing a huge weight of malnutrition. Its demographics are higher on the side of young individuals with 45 per cent of Indian population being 0-25 years of age only wherein 45 per cent of children aged upto 5 years are stunted and more than 70 per cent are anemic. Malnutrition is a multi-causal problem trapped in the circle of poverty, illiteracy and physical incapacity. Under-nourished mothers are unable to provide complete nutrition to fetuses/ infants resulting in underweight and stunted children with poor immunity.
