Background: The Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) program has been operation for more than three decades in India. The success of ICDS program in tackling maternal and childhood problems still remain a matter of concern. The present study was conducted to assess issues related to Anganwadi Worker (AWW) and Anganwadi centre (AWC) including infrastructure facilities.
Material and methods: A cross sectional study was conducted in 56 Anganwadi centres (AWCs) of Chitradurga district using a predesigned questionnaire containing 42 questions by interns. The details regarding the infrastructure, process indicators and outcome indicators were collected and analyzed.
Results: All the AWCS visited provided 100% PSE and 100% SN coverage among children. A majority of pregnant and lactating mothers (73.3%) & adolescent girls (57.3%) were availing ICDS services. One third of AWCs reported an interruption in the availability of commodities by the government.
Conclusion: The study has reported gaps in terms of infrastructure facilities and safe and continuous drinking water supply. A number of issues pertaining to the ICDS scheme must be identified for the optimized functioning of AWC and it needs to be promptly addressed.

Abstract: We examined the data of appeals to outpatient clinics in order to detect the
incidence of pneumonia in children in areas with different intensities of pesticide usage. It
was found that in the areas of intensive usage of pesticides (cotton growing area) in
children aged 0-4 years, acute pneumonia is recorded 3-5 times more often than in the
zone of limited usage of pesticides (livestock area). The static differences are significant.
The prevalence of acute pneumonia among girls is 7–20% higher than among boys. The
highest level of respiratory diseases is found at the age of 1 to 4 years. With the increase in
the territorial burden of pesticides, the level of perinatal pathology and the number of
premature infants increase. The data confirm that acute pneumonia and other respiratory
diseases are more common in the cotton growing area than in the livestock one. However,
the study of the regional characteristics of the incidence of children has established that in
the general structure of the respiratory diseases, pneumonia occupies the first place.

The article presents the results of our own research on the detection of the cumulative effect of the studied food additives of different classes in the comparative aspect. The results obtained allowed us to conclude that the flavor identical to natural and artificial flavor with prolonged ingestion can cause pathological processes in the liver, as well as lead to over excitation of the nervous system, followed by a sharp inhibition.
