Using a multidisciplinary approach, this volume contemplates whether microcredit can be considered a “pro-health” poverty alleviation for Indian women. The links between poverty and women's health are investigated from a theoretical perspective, which draws upon economist Amartya Sen's capability approach and population-health models, as well as from an empirical perspective—based on a study examining female participation in self-help groups and their health. This monograph will be of interest to those focused on population health, poverty reduction, and women's development.
