UNICEF has completed 48 years in the year 1997 and has provided assistance, training
programmes and many regional projects started from time to time. UNICEF has changed many facets and programmes for the ever-changing health standards. In 1959 WHO and FAO along with UNICEF started a nutritional programme for the children of less than 5 years of age. Then it was changed to Extended Nutritional Programme, which was organized through Mahila Mandals. In 1963 this programme was made more useful by giving nutrition to children and also to pregnant and lactating mothers and named as Applied Nutrition Programme. In the decade 1980-90, UNICEF expanded its services to remote rural areas.
