In the population of urban slums, the following are the areas of health where we have observed a gender data gap:
1. Family planning: access to birth control, agency to use birth control, religious beliefs that are deterrents to using birth control.
2. Birth Spacing
3. Regarding disenfranchised communities: access to hygiene, sanitation and health services, coupled with the other burdens of homelessness.
4. Longevity in urban slums: there is almost no data regarding women and other vulnerable genders and populations.
5. "No people": for instance, the government data states that the population of Shivaji Nagar, a highly deprived community living around the dumping ground in Mumbai, is around 2 lakh, but is in fact approximately 4 lakh. This, is a major gap in data, mostly concerning women.
6. Data from women belonging to religious minorities: linkage between access to education, health indicators and overall agency of women is not available.
Do let me know if this seems relevant to the discussion!
