Malnutrition among women and children in India: limited evidence of underweight, anemia, overweight, and stunting within individuals and households at both state and district levels
Sustainable Development Goals: 2, 3
- SDG 2 - Zero Hunger
- SDG 3 - Good Health and Well-Being
This article examined the prevalence of malnutrition alongside stunting, anemia, being overweight or being underweight among women and children at both the state and district levels in India. The authors found a prevalence of dual burdens between malnutrition and anemia, stunting, and being underweight, but did not find a dual burden between being overweight and having malnutrition in India.
