Health Equity in AP

Health Metrics Network established by the WHO is working with countries on the development of a set of standards and tools to improve synthesis, analysis and data use for major health planning and decision- making, such as health sector reviews and strategic plans. In India it has commissioned the IHS to conduct an assessment of health and equity. The study will assess different aspects of equity for some important stratifies: e.g., urban/rural inequalities, wealth inequalities, gender and education-related  health inequalities on health variables such as MR, U5MR, measeals vaccination, skilled birth attendance, preventive therapy of malaria in pregnant women, malnutrition in children (stunting), and combined variable called co-coverage. Some of these inequalities in health will be decomposed into the contributing factors.[1]
