WHERE WE STARTED

Founded in 1974 by Dr. Samir Chaudhuri, a paediatrician with a special interest in child malnutrition, and other like-minded persons, CINI started its journey from villages around Kolkata as a clinic for malnourished under-5 children

THE STORY BEHIND THE CINI METHOD

From working with sick and malnlourished children in 1974 in Kolkatta our work saw the impact of social determinants of health and nutritional status, the changing and expanded role of government services and the absence of rights based approach in the demand or the provision of essential services. This recognition of the need to consolidate our work under a a human rights-based approach was central to the evolution of the CINI method.
