ABOUT THE BOOK :

Demographic processes and health outcomes are highly gendered in India. At the same time, studies on the impact of gender on demography and health issues are scarce and the impact of demographic changes on gender is nearly nonexistent. Mere recognition of the gender issues does not provide policy guidance to make appropriate changes in the programmes. This calls for innovative methods to understand demographic changes, health scenario and gender systems and also a critical analysis of various public interventions. India is also experiencing rapid demographic changes in recent years which will have definite implications for demographic pattern, gender system, health progress and governmental policies and programmes. There are several policy and programmatic interventions to generate conducive demographic and health changes through gender equity.

This volume brings together contributions from scholars on demographic changes, gender and health system and health policies and programmes in India. It highlights achievements and challenges facing the country in the area of population, gender and health in different settings. It also brings up new methods of analysing the relationship. This volume, undoubtedly, will be a useful guide to students, researchers and policy makers in India and across the world.


Advance praise:

 

"A remarkable contribution to the population and health research in India. This book will be a useful guide to policy makers and program managers for assessing their strategies, and for researchers to explore new ideas and avenues of research."
— Nesim Tumkaya,
Country Representative, UNFPA, India.

"This collection provides a very useful analysis of the issues and policies relating to health, gender and demography. It is known that all these three topics are interrelated. The articles in this volume have lucidly analyzed various sides of complex policy issues. The suggestions can go a long way in tackling the problems relating to health and women’s development. I complement the authors for editing this important volume."
— S. Mahendra Dev, Chairman Commission on Agricultural Costs and Prices, Government of India and former Director, Centre for Economic and Social Studies, Hyderabad.

"Many of these papers are an important contribution to health and gender issues in India. It will definitely enhance the methods of demographic analysis in the future."
— F. Ram, Director and Senior Professor, International Institute for Population Sciences, Mumbai.

All those interested in demographic change, gender and health in India will find this book invaluable.
— S. Irudaya Rajan, Chair Professor, Research Unit on International Migration, Centre for Development Sties, Trivandrum.
