Updates & Corrections

  • Correction 21 June 2019: This story originally cited a 2016 Lancet review of global adolescent health and wellbeing, and a 2018 Lancet Global Health investigation into disproportionate female mortality across India as being papers that JNCASR reserachers had been involved with. In fact, it was reserchers at Jawaharlal Nehru University. It also mentioned that Ramamurti Rajaraman as a high-profile emeritus at the university. He, too, is actually at Jawaharlal Nehru University. The text has been updated to refelect this.
