Sixth NFHS to begin in June

India's National Family Health Survey (NFHS) will launch its sixth round of fieldwork in June, with the results expected next year. The survey will assess progress in areas including health, demography and gender equity. The basic design and questions will remain the same as in previous rounds, with a small change being made in how anaemia is determined. A dietary survey is also planned, and questions will be included on the Ayushman Bharat-Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana scheme. Previous rounds of the survey have influenced health policy in India.
