Background Paper on Reproductive Health    [108 kb / Microsoft Word]
Author(s):  Carla AbouZahr
Date of Publication: September 01, 1999
"Adapting to Change," Core Course on Population, Reproductive Health, and Health Sector Reform. World Bank Institute. The articulation of the concept of reproductive rights, accompanied by growing strength of the women’s movement and the advent of the HIV/AIDS pandemic, became the impetus behind the paradigm shift in reproductive health care that Cairo represents. Despite a generalised adoption of the Cairo wording, there still exist different ways of conceptualising reproductive health, which makes it hard to define its precise boundaries. It is also difficult to precisely assess the extent to which reproductive ill-health outcomes contributes to the overall burden of disease among different groups of people due to some disadvantages of the existing epidemiological databases and summary measures of population health such as DALYs. However, it is clear that the suffering associated with poor reproductive health is large, especially in developing countries, and more particularly among the poor, which implies its risk factors. Impact of poor reproductive health can be further investigated beyond maternal morbidity and mortality.
