Book Launch

Socio-Economic Differences in Health, Nutrition, and Population Within Developing Countries

Monday, February 25, 2008 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm

Disparities within developing countries contribute as much to global child health inequalities as do disparities between the developing and developed worlds.  These disparities within countries are being exacerbated by inequalities in basic health care, and they will not necessarily be reduced by faster progress toward the Millennium Development Goals. These are some of the many findings that emerge from 56 country reports are produced through a joint effort of the Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) project and the World Bank. They are based on data drawn from 95 household DHS surveys conducted between 1990 and 2005.
