Bio-physiologic interactions among nutritional state, breastfeeding, maternal fecundity and childhood survival in developing countries: perspectives of epidemiological transition in rural Bangladesh



Bio-physiologic interactions among nutritional state, breastfeeding, maternal fecundity and childhood survival in developing countries: perspectives of epidemiological transition in rural Bangladesh



Asian Profile 17(5): 437-454



The population of Bangladesh reflects an extension of the pre-modern pattern of health with an average shorter life expectancy (around 50 years) and an unusually high childhood death rate. This paper seeks to discern an interactive process between maternal dietary habits, child-feeding and reproductive behaviour on the one hand and infant mortality on the other.
