The Report of the study is in two parts – Part A gives the findings of the literature survey, the limitations of the database and the data gaps for each infection; Part B is the annotated bibliography for each of the four infections. The centres reviewed the published and unpublished information on the four identified infections. The review showed several limitations of the available data. Valid and reliable cause of death is an essential input for estimation of disease burden. In India, cause of death statistics is incomplete. Some information on cause of death for rural areas used to be collected for rural areas through the Survey of Cause of Death –rural scheme which operated till 1998. Thereafter cause of death was to be incorporated as a component of Sample Registration scheme.[ICMR & WHO 2006]
