Health status of street children in Bhubaneswar, capital city of Odisha–A study
Author(s): Dr. Ajanta Nayak
Street children are categorized into three major groups namely children on the street, of the street and abandoned/neglected children. The problem of street children is a global one and Odisha is no exception in the list. There hasn’t been any motivated effort ever made to widely discuss the matter of “street children” and also there is no well-managed, well-coordinated, detailed research and study ever conducted to discuss this issue of prime importance. The harsh reality of Odisha presents the pale pictures of ignored and neglected children thus resulting these disadvantaged people in the state today. They are deprived of educational and mental development. Economic pressure mounted on them so much that compels them coming to the street. This research work may be the small step towards providing a reference point for discussion and influencing the direction of policy and programming on street children in Odisha
