Blurb/Shorttext:
Quantity and Quality are the two important dimensions of human population in any country. In general, all the countries are committed in improving the quality of population, a better welfare standard measure. Among them poverty and health could serve as the measurement of quality of population. More than 1 billion people in the world today, almost half of them women, live in unacceptable conditions of poverty, mostly in the developing countries. Since the last few decade women's health has been receiving special attention the world over. Women's general health needs do not get the necessary attention. This situation is mainly due to women's health needs getting the least priority in the family. The negative effect of poverty is even more acute because of the existing gender bias against women. Due to poverty, illiteracy and lack of awareness, children are considered as economic assets. This, in turn results in worsening the health conditions of women.
