Women empowerment index, low birth weight and malnutrition
  • Women empowerment plays a significant role in measuring several sustainable development goals, especially Goal-5 (Gender equality). Similarly, low birth weight and malnutrition play a key role in monitoring SDG Goal-3 ( Good health and well being). We are trying to track this goal by measuring women empowerment index, low birth weight, and malnutrition of a south Asian developing country. This work will help the corresponding authority track the specified SDG goal to achieve it by 2030.
