NAC Working Group on Gender & the Sex Ratio


  The NAC Working Group held three national consultations on different aspects of this issue. Working Group conveners also separately met with Ministry of Women and Child Development, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and with the National Mission for the Empowerment of Women. Based upon these consultations and meetings, the Working Group proposed the draft recommendations. The recommendations in this paper call for both strengthening and modifying existing interventions as well as for developing a comprehensive national policy on the declining sex ratio at birth.
