Pakistan is one among the underdeveloped countries in world and has poor health indicators. The areas proposed for the implementation of this project are among the poorest in the country with low figures for health and nutrition indicators.
In Pakistan nutrition problems are closely related to the poor general health status of the population. With many males and females working outside the home, grandmothers and siblings play important roles in childcare. Husbands are the major decision makers, but maternal grandmothers play an active role indecision-making with regard to health seeking behavior and women help manage the family finances. Unhygienic and unsafe environments place children at risk. Ingestion of unsafe water, inadequate availability of water for hygiene, and lack of access to sanitation contributes to child deaths and is a risk factor for diarrhea mortality. Other health-related behaviors, such as birth spacing and poor breastfeeding practices, are also important risk factors for child mortality.
Women in rural areas continue to die in unacceptably large numbers during childbirth. Children are malnourished, particularly in provinces. Poor students enroll in primary schools, but poverty compels them to leave school at an early age. Finally, land issues continue to pose serious challenges to ordinary people’s livelihoods. Excessive fragmentation, inequality and landlessness, as well as land conflicts are some manifestations of the contested issue natural resources have become. Developing rural areas, therefore, is an issue of serious concern that has yet to be adequately addressed.
