    Women in 13 states have little knowledge of AIDS
    (Mumbai, India: International Institute for Population Sciences, 1995-10) Lahiri, Subrata ; Balk, Deborah ; Pathak, K. B.
    The NFHS Bulletin is a series of four-page policy briefs summarizing secondary analysis of data from the 1992-93 National Family Health Survey (NFHS) in India. The NFHS collected information from nearly 90,000 Indian women on a range of demographic and health topics. Conducted under the auspices of the Indian Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, the survey provides national and state-level estimates of fertility, infant and child mortality, family planning practice, maternal and child health, and the utilization of services available to mothers and children. IIPS conducted the survey in cooperation with consulting organizations and 18 population research centers throughout India. The East-West Center and a U.S.-based consulting firm, Macro International, provided technical assistance, and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) provided financial support.

    Identifying children with high mortality risk
    (Mumbai, India: International Institute for Population Sciences and Honolulu: East-West Center, 1999) Choe, Minja Kim
    NFHS data on infant and child mortality indicate that seven groups of children in India are particularly vulnerable to mortality risks. These are: children born less than 24 months after a previous birth, children in families where an older sibling has died, children born to mothers less than 20 years old, children of illiterate mothers, children in very poor households, children in households whose head belongs to a scheduled caste or tribe, and children in households without access to a flush or pit toilet. Intervention programs to improve child survival should focus on these high-risk groups.

    Women's education can improve child nutrition in India
    (Mumbai, India: International Institute for Population Sciences and Honolulu: East-West Center, 2000) Mishra, Vinod K. ; Retherford, Robert D.
    Results from NFHS-1 indicate that more than half of all Indian children under age four are malnourished. Children whose mothers have little or no education and children with three or more older siblings tend to have a lower nutritional status than do other children. Surprisingly, malnutrition rates are just as high for boys as for girls.
