The health of women and children is influenced by many factors, but a primary driver is economic and social equality

                                          MODULE 5 HW – Malnutrition, Gender Age

Student Name:_____________________

In previous modules, we’ve explored how social determinants shape the health of individuals and populations.  In this assignment, we explore how these factors shape gender and health, and nutrition.  Women’s and children’s health are often used as a marker of the overall health of a nation.  Health of women and children is influenced by many factors, but a primary driver is economic and social equality.  In this assignment, we ask you to examine rates of malnutrition, maternal health and the social progress index. We will also look at child nutrition and maternal health as markers of overall public health.

  1. Select two countries from the list at the end of the assignment and provide data on maternal health and nutrition for each using the World Bank data. (If you do not select countries from the list below, it will be an automatic 0 on this homework.) Please make sure you are providing the year of the data in parentheses along with the units (if these are not included, you will receive zero points for that cell). ( (8 points)
