Reproductive Child Health

R N Pati (Author)
Synopsis The present book deals with various issues concerning reproductive health and child survival. The concept of reproductive health refers to a condition in which the reproductive process is accomplished in a state of complete physical, mental and social well being and not merely the absence of disease. The issues of reproductive health are very complex and numerous. Reproductive tract infection as a silent epidemic takes life of at least one million people each year. In developing countries, 585,000 women, one every minute, die from pregnancy related problems. Well over 2,00,000 maternal deaths are reported each year. As many as 70,000 women die annually due to unsafe abortion, infection and other health consequences. Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) have affected life of six out of ten women in developing countries. A great majority of maternal deaths are attributed to malnutrition, domestic violence, anaemia, poverty and gender inequality. This book widely covers research studies conducted by different research organizations of India, viz, National Institute of Nutrition (Hyderabad), Institute for Research in Reproduction (Mumbai), Population Research Centres of different states. This book has comprehensively covered various issues of child survival and reproductive health. This book is highly useful for research and research scientists working on Reproductive and Child Health (RCH).
