NAC Working Group on Gender and the Sex Ratio Draft Recommendations
AbstractThe NAC Working Group held three national consultations on different aspects of the issue of declining child sex ratio. The 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 proposes the following draft recommendations. The recommendations call for both strengthening and modifying existing interventions as well as for developing a comprehensive national policy on the declining sex ratio at birth.
