Brief Description about the Project:
The aim of the Million Death Study (MDS) Fellowship is to strengthen scientific research capacity among St. John’s faculty in public health in areas relevant to India. The Fellowship provides support for junior researchers to gain research experience using the vast amount of data available within the Million Death Study and to encourage our junior faculty in careers in public health.
The Million Death Study (MDS) is one of the largest studies of premature mortality in the world. The MDS is an ongoing study that is conducted in India, where the majority of deaths occur at home and without medical attention. In collaboration with the Registrar General of India, the MDS monitored nearly 14 million people in 2.4 million nationally representative households in India between 2001 and 2014. Any deaths that occurred in these households during this period will be assigned a probable cause, as determined by a method called verbal autopsy.
