India – Country-Specific Report

India is home to the biggest child population in the world. The country has an approximate of 440 million children, thus constituting more than 40% of the total population. With more than one-third of its population below 18 years, India has the largest young population in the world. Thus the onus is on the Government as well as the larger society to ensure a safe and healthy environment for the development of its children.

The Global Study divided its country report for India into two detailed regional studies: West Bengal and Goa.
