The BMI is an attempt to quantify the amount of tissue mass (muscle, fat, and bone) in an individual, and then categorize that person as underweight, normal weight, overweight, or obese based on that value.

The BMI is generally used as a means of correlation between groups related by general mass and can serve as a vague means of estimating adiposity. The duality of the BMI is that, while it is easy to use as a general calculation, it is limited as to how accurate and pertinent the data obtained from it can be. Generally, the index is suitable for recognizing trends within sedentary or overweight individuals because there is a smaller margin of error. The BMI has been used by the WHO as the standard for recording obesity statistics since the early 1980s.

The study area of Salboni Block is 25 km away from  Medinipur town. Subjects are 10-19 years  adolescent girl. The study were done on 1009 girls. .

Structured questionnaires were followed to know details of socio-economic status of studied adolescent Stature was measured to the nearest 0.1 cm in bare feet with participants standing upright against a wall-mounted stadiometer.

FMI and BMI have weak correlation , Among them  24.4 % are under nutrient  based on BMI and  99.8 % are undernutrient based on percent body fat.34.2 %  low health status by assessing Rohrer index. According to Roc curve 18.45 kg/sqm will  cut off value of ced this study. Malnutrition affects HIV transmission by increasing the risk of transmission from mother to child and also by increasing replication of the virus. In communities or areas that lack access to safe drinking water, these additional health risks present a critical problem. Lower energy and impaired function of the brain also represent the downward spiral of malnutrition as victims are less able to perform the tasks they need to in order to acquire food, earn an income, or gain an education.
