Infanticide is illegal in India. Since infanticide, especially neonaticide, is often a response to an unwanted birth, preventing unwanted pregnancies through improved sex education and increased contraceptive access are advocated as ways of preventing infanticide. Increased use of contraceptives and access to safe legal abortions have greatly reduced neonaticide in many developed nations. Screening for psychiatric disorders or risk factors, and providing treatment or assistance to those at risk may help prevent infanticide.
