Summary

Iodine Deficiency Disorders(IDD) are a major public health problem in Orissa. A study undertaken by the central Goitre Survey Team along with the three Govt. Medical Colleges of the state revealed that 90% of the state is not free from the IDD. In the view of the very high total goitre prevalence rate in the state, the district authorities have taken proactive steps in polularizing use and consumption of iodised salt in the district by trading of iodized salt through SHG in Athgarh Sub-Division.
