Department of Public Health and Mortality Studies

The department was incepted in 1986, when the Institute was granted the Deemed University status by the University Grants Commission. Currently, the department has five faculty members, who are actively engaged in teaching (postgraduate and research students), capacity building, and research in the field of public health and mortality studies and in other domains of population and health, such as reproductive health, gender, morbidity, nutrition, qualitative methods, global health, ageing, and computer applications.
Over the years, department faculty members have contributed immensely through publications in peer-reviewed journals and books as well as through involvement in many important population and health-related studies and programmes (national and international) as experts or consultants and/or principal or co-principal investigators. Most of these studies have been sponsored by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Government of India, UNFPA, UNICEF, WHO, Johns Hopkins University & Gates Foundation, Ford Foundation, and Population Council.
