Abstract

The authors aimed to understand the role of immediate and underlying determinants of subnational trends in underweight between 2002 and 2011 in India

This research is supported by the Department for International Development’s Transform Nutrition Programme which is led by International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI)
