Gender Implications for survival in South Asia

Description

This paper will take as its focus 'differential female care', in the sense of any aspect of care which has an impact on health. Inevitably the measure of health will usually be mortality rates, not because measures of health and sickness are not important, but because they are so difficult to achieve and because we lack them for most populations. First, we should intrude a few notes of demographic caution.
