In spite of the execution of different levels of mitigation schemes, at tenths of millions of rupees (10 Million rupees ≈ 200,000 A$), people of the affected areas are often still exposed to risk, due to non-adherence to the stipulated performance standards and lack of involvement of the community in such measures. Fluorosis mitigation in majority of affected habitations has been limited to defluoridation of contaminated water, without any consideration for health and nutrition sensitive initiatives.
The proposed research, will be the first innovative holistic assessment with the aim to find sustainable area specific techno-socio-economic Integrated Fluorosis Mitigation approach, having health and nutrition sensitive interventions, which are suitable for rural Rajasthan and can easily be replicated in other fluorosis endemic areas of the world to help fluorosis affected communities getting rid of menace of dreaded fluorosis.
