Nutrition and Health in Rural India

Nutrition and Health in Rural India THIS book brings together the results of two recent empirical studies of nutrition and health in rural India. The two studies are respectively based on (1) a detailed survey of Devarishikuppam panchayat in North Arcot district (Tamil Nadu), carried out in 1984-85 and covering a little over 600 households, and (2) a survey of 112 children under the age of five, and their families, in four tribal hamlets of Warangal district (Andhra Pradesh). The first study focuses primarily on adult health and nutrition, the second on child nutrition. Throughout the book, a valuable and scholarly effort is made to relate these two case studies to recent debates about nutrition and health in the developing world, as well as to other empirical studies.
