India has made great strides in improving the well-being of its population. Enrolment in primary school is almost universal, life expectancy has increased, maternal and infant mortality have declined, more couples have exercised their right to bear the children they want, and HIV rates have fallen. There exist policies, laws, and programmes that intend to advance general welfare and the exercise of informed choice and reproductive rights of women, men, and adolescents. Progress has, however, been uneven. Notwithstanding policy and programme commitments to meet the health and development needs of India`s population, their translation at the community and grassroots level is far from comprehensive and the most vulnerable populations remain unaware about their reproductive rights or are unable to exercise them. Child marriage continues to prevail, women continue to experience physical and sexual violence at home and outside of it, gender-biased sex selection is evident, and access to sexual and reproductive health services, including safe abortion, is compromised for many. Synthesizing both qualitative and quantitative data on youth, gender, reproductive health and rights, and population, from a variety of sources, this volume presents a composite assessment of the situation and provides directions for government strategies and programmes. Printed Pages: 368.
