South Asia Center presents: Dr. Rama Narayanan - Developing Conceptual Framework for Studying Women's Empowerment and Nutritional Outcomes in Young Children
Dr. Rama Narayanan, Fellow, Observer Research Foundation
Approaches to studying nutritional outcomes in young children have considered the health and nutritional status of mothers and socio-economic conditions as the principal determinants. However, the relatively better nutritional status of children in much poorer economies and the prevalence of undernutrition among children in affluent households indicate other determinants arising out of women’s lack of empowerment. The presentation attempts a conceptual framework for studying women’s empowerment and nutritional outcomes in young children using the UNICEF framework as a starting point.
