    Background of the Seminar :

    With a population of 1.3 billion, India is passing through spectacular demographic changes. As every sixth person of world is living in India, its population health, socio-demographic characteristics and economic status determine the average global indicators. India is in third stage of demographic transition, with huge variations across the states. Not only has the level of development affects demographic processes, but also the gender, patriarchy and culture shaped demographic outcomes and preferences.

    The recent global commitment to bring about a comprehensive healthy living through the SD Goals by 2030 has rekindled the need to improve further. The recent NFHS-4 results also informed that fertility has declined considerably in most states; with only 11 states still above replacement level. Nearly half of currently married women still do not use any contraception, and female sterilization constitutes the bulk of family planning methods used. There has been tremendous improvement in many sociodemographic and health indicators. Yet, nutrition and its related diseases, including non-communicable diseases, have emerged as areas of larger public health concern. The seminar intends to focus on these population and health issues through the themes identified (listed below), to ensure better understanding and are appropriately addressed, including the regional gaps.
