Summary

Summary

This report provides a summary of selected aspects of population, gender and development. It includes a historical review of the major components of population change in the context of gender issues. It presents summaries of trends on such topics as: family formation, including marriage, contraception and fertility; health and mortality, including HIV/AIDS; ageing and gender; and internal and international migration. The policies and activities of governments in regards to these issues are also reviewed. This publication is a revised version of the report presented to the Commission on Population and Development, as part of an annual series of studies to assess progress on the implementation of the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development.
