About the Book

The concept of reproductive health implies that couples have choice' and ability to reproduce, to control their fertility and to practice and enjoy sexual relationship. Reproductive health is not only to be conceived as a state of reproductive process free from disease and disorder. Safe motherhood and Family planning are two vital components of reproductive health. Reproductive Tract Infections (RTIs), Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs), Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs), Unsafe abortion, Genital mutilation are most underlying causes of reproductive ill health of women. The reproductive health issues of women in India are very complex. The reproductive issues of women revolve around the complex web of gender Relations and power structures. The reproductive health issues of Indian women are sexuality, maternal mortality and abortion, male involvement, domestic violence which are not often appropriately highlighted. In India, various cultural, social and economic factors influence reproductive health of women. In this book, these socio-cultural dimensions of reproductive health have been critically analysed. Eminent social scientists and demographers of India have contributed empirical articles on various issues of reproductive health of women. This Book is a masterpiece of its kind.
