Why lower socio-economic inequality holds key to reducing malnutrition (The Indian Express)

The Indian Express reported on IFPRI’s latest research on drivers behind child stunting in India based on the district-level data. Discussing the findings of the research, IFPRI-SAR’s Purnima Menon emphasized on the need to address gender-related inequalities at the district level to reduce stunting. “Factors concerning women across their life cycles, such as their education, nutrition, age at marriage, care during and after pregnancy, play a significant role, as do the overall socio-economic status of the household,” said Menon.
