Abstract: While economic growth, poverty reduction and improvements in the standard of living have gradually led to a rise in female life expectancy and more balanced sex ratios, the female deficit has not yet disappeared. Gender disparity has become concentrated in children aged 0-5 and at birth. For the conference, this phenomenon was called “missing daughters.” The report covers a workshop designed to facilitate dialogue on missing daughters in Asia, providing a forum where research, strategies and ideas could be openly exchanged and analyzed. Information about the background of each country (Bangladesh, China, India and Vietnam) and specific issues are provided.
