Union Health and Family Welfare Minister Dr. Mansukh Mandaviya and Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare Dr. Bharati Pawar inaugurated two new Departments and two new Research Centres at International Institute for Population Sciences (IIPS) in Deonar, Mumbai today. The newly inaugurated departments are ‘Department of Survey Research and Data Analytics’ and the ‘Department of Family and Generations’. The new Centres are called ‘Centre of Demography of Gender’ and ‘Centre for Ageing Studies’. 

The new departments and centres will work in line with the vision of taking Indian institutions to global level and making the country self-reliant. The focus areas of these new departments and research centres are well-being of girl-children, women and the elderly population. Union Health Ministry had approved these departments and centres at IIPS from October 1, 2021.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Mandaviya said, India has a huge population of 1.4 billion and using data analytics and artificial intelligence, the country would be able to synchronise this data into metadata. He said, International Institute for Population Sciences has the potential of broad segment analysis and preparing reports on these data, which will be useful not just for India but the world.
