New Delhi: According to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Human Development Report 2013 that was released on Thursday, Brazil, India and China have reduced the proportion of their people in the poor income category—Brazil from 17.2% of its population in 1990 to 6.1% in 2009, China from 60.2% in 1990 to 13.1% in 2008, and India from 49.4% in 1990 to 32.7% in 2010. But there are some indicators that show that countries such as India have still much to do. India has the most projected child deaths in 2010-2015 at 7.9 million, according to the report, accounting for half the deaths among children under the age of five in Asia.
