Research Themes|Population and Development

Population challenges and The ICPD agenda for development bring to the table the need for a new vision that is anchored on human rights, informed free choices, and gender empowerment.  Such a vision is captured in the centrality and the new definition and approach in pursuing reproductive health equity.
