Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS)

Integrated Child Development Services is a government programme in India which provides food, preschool education, primary healthcare, immunization, health check-up, and referral services to children under 6 years of age and their mothers.

The various vertical health programmes initiated by the Government of India (GOI) from time to time did not reach out to the target community adequately. In 1974, India adopted a well-defined national policy for children. In pursuance of this policy, it was decided to start a holistic multicentric programme with a compact package of services. The decision led to the formulation of the Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) scheme – one of the most prestigious and premier national human resource development programmes of the GOI.
