This book brings insight vividly the multiple dimensions of women and children health and nutrition. The outline of the book encompasses the health and nutritional status of the Bhumij tribal women and children of Northern Odisha, India. This book accentuates the overall health and nutritional status of the tribal women and also the children which seems to be very poor and worst because of their isolation, remoteness and being largely unaffected by the developmental process going on in the country. The exhaustive research on the health and nutrition apprehends the high risk of under-nutrition among the women and children due to irregularity of food supply.
Thus this book is a handbook for anthropologists, social scientists, policy makers, planners and demographers to understand the health need of the tribal population and design the developmental programmes accordingly.
