Abstract

Health status of women in India is gloomy as compared to their counterparts in developed countries and also to men of our country. On the one hand women in rural area suffer from under- nutrition and on the other hand the over- nutrition and obesity have emerged as public health problems in urban areas. And there has been increase in prevalence of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases especially in urban areas. The health status of women in India though gradually improving as compared to past but is not satisfactory as compared to its economic growth rate and to other developed countries.
