Various social determinants of health—which include economical, political, and environmental factors—play a major role in the health outcomes of women in India and access to healthcare in India. India currently has one of the highest rates of malnourished women among developing countries and also the lack of maternal health which contributes to future economic disparities for mothers and their children. Women and adolescents were unable to access basic health services during lockdown.
