The Reproductive and Child Health Policy (RCH) in India has been in force since 1995. Coming after the Cairo Conference, 1994, the RCH was expected to usher in a 'paradigm shift' in India's population policy. From a family welfare programme that has historically been top-down, even coercive, the Indian government projected the RCH to be a participatory, women-centred reproductive health service. Ironically, the policy was devised barely four years after the start of the Indian State's tryst with market development, and was launched into a political environment in ideological transition. This book provides a political analysis of the RCH policy, tracking how neo-liberal and purportedly, women-centred reproductive health discourses are positioned against each other.
