The Assignment (3–4 pages):
Describe two health outcomes for which India and China have had different experiences in the last half century.
Explain the reasons for the disparities noted.
Describe the experience for those outcomes in Kerala and suggest reasons for why they are similar or different from the rest of India.
Expand on your insights utilizing the Learning Resources.
