Witten in an easy-to-understand form, this book covers research methods, maternal and infant survival, nutritional status, nutritional deficiency disorders, gender disparity and adolescent reproductive sexual health. The book also describes statistical methods that are promising but have hardly been used in India. Also included are measurements of hunger and food security, hunger mapping, diseases in community clusters, randomized response technique for sensitive characteristics and small area estimation for inadequate sample size. Each of these techniques is explained through live data examples.
This volume brings together two areas of health that are among the foci of current development efforts, as articulated by the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), namely sexual and reproductive health (MDG 5: improve maternal health, target 2: achieve, by 2015, universal access to reproductive health); and Gender (MDG 3: promote gender equality and empower women). Few, if any, published books have dealt in a comprehensive way with public health aspects of these two strongly interrelated areas of health. Most published volumes devoted to sexual and reproductive health have a strong clinical focus, whereas books on gender tend to concentrate primarily on the socio-cultural and anthropological aspects of the subject.
* Focuses on the relationship between sexual and reproductive behaviors and the resulting impact on populations and societies as a group
* Provides a science-based approach to identifying appropriate response plans, adaptations, and mitigation steps for related behaviors
*Explores the financial and societal impact of behavioral choices
*Includes new preface specifically for this audience
This new book will be a core text for undergraduate Maternity/Newborn courses. It also will work for courses emphasizing Women's Health across the lifespan.

The Diary of an Ordinary Chinese Woman's Transformation from an Obedient Asian Wife to a Masochistic Chink Slut: I'm a 29 years old, slim, petite, well-educated Chinese woman. Even though I still look very young compared to other women of my age, especially compared to white women, biologically I'm approaching the peak of my sexuality. But I'm married to a worthless Chinese husband who can't fulfill me and every day and night I fantasize of being sexually dominated by a real man, a White man-whenever I fantasize about sex, it's inevitably a White man, always, even in my dreams I dream of a dirty old White man just stripping me naked, beating me, tying me up, whipping me mercilessly with his belt, and then-use me, brutally, treat me like a dirty yellow cum dump. I can't help myself and I really wish someone could help me fulfill my unfulfilled sexual desires that are burning me alive. Call me his chink cum dump, his oriental meat urinal, rape me, torture me, beat me, humiliate me. I yearn for this kind of treatment. And for a long time I had struggled with those bad evil thoughts because they were un-feminist and un-liberal, but then I thought, if I am really equal to men, I should never be ashamed to admit those feelings, because men have no problem with expressing their sexuality so why should I? And men curse, yell, scream, and society is perfectly ok with that, but should I as a woman be held to a different standard?
