MGM Hospital

Jamshedpur (Jharkhand):
In an incident which exposes once again poor health facilities in the country, some 52 infants have been reported dead in the last 30 days, according to officials due to malnutrition, at Jamshedpur's Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Medical College (MGM) hospital in Jharkhand.

The incident came to light weeks after more than 60 children were died at a government hospital in Uttar Pradesh's Gorakhpur due to shortage of oxygen.

The hospital was established on November 14, 1961. It was undertaken by the Government of Bihar in the year 1979. Since 2010, the college has been affiliated by Chaibasa's Kolhan University.

Jharkhand has been reportedly battling the problem of malnutrition among the kids, primarily in the tribal belt of the state since long.

Chief Minister Raghubar Das in 2015 has also launched Nutrition Mission Jharkhand (NMJ) setting a 10-year plan to fight malnutrition in the state.
