Reproductive Health Management

Sibnath Deb (Editor)
Synopsis This book titled 'Reproductive Health Management' illustrates that it is both an integrated academic domain and a distinct professional career pathway, although the subject 'Reproductive Health' (RH) is relatively new. The book provides a rich vein of raw materials that can be used by teachers and students to give life to concepts and theory. The first four chapters define the field, show how RH articulates with other domains of sexual health, psychology and biomedicine, and discuss the significant achievements to date and the difficult challenges ahead of India. The three main sections on adolescent health, HIV/ AIDS and family planning provide evocative accounts of cultural traditions and recent change is personal behaviours and informal and formal care that directly impact upon mortality, morbidity and quality of life. Overall, this book gives a good ground for optimism. The various local studies and the broader comparisons of waves of national statistics reveal solid, if sometimes slow, progress toward better reproductive health outcomes. The work described in this book would contribute to training in many disciplines like social sciences, community medicine and help management. The book would also help the policy makers to have better insight about the issue and to take up evidence-based measures.
