The STATE OF THE WORLD POPULATION REPORT 2004 published

The report, The Cairo Consensus at Ten: Population, Reproductive Health and the Global Effort to End Poverty, reviews countries achievements and constraints in implementing the Programme of Action, nearly half way to the 2015 completion target date. It examines actions addressing: the links between population and poverty, environmental protection, migration and urbanization; discrimination against women and girls; and key reproductive health issues including access to contraception, maternal health, HIV/AIDS, and the needs of adolescents and people in emergency situations.

Countries are making real progress in carrying out a bold global action plan that links poverty alleviation to womens rights and universal access to reproductive health. Ten years into the new era opened by the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in Cairo, the quality and reach of family planning programmes have improved, safe motherhood and HIV prevention efforts are being scaled up, and governments embrace the ICPD Programme of Action as an essential blueprint for realizing development goals.

But inadequate resources, gender bias and gaps in serving the poor and adolescents are undermining further progress as challenges mount.
