Event details

Social Statistics and Demography Seminar Series

2014 will mark the end of the 20 year Programme of Action of the Cairo International Conference on Population and Development. In 2015, new development cooperation goals will be set as the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) time frame also expires. During this period, there has been tangible progress in the sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) of women and men but this advancement has been greater for some aspects of SRHR than for others . In addition, there remain serious inequities in SRHR around the world. As donors and developing country governments gear up to set goals for the post-MDG era, what should be the priorities for SRHR? Sara Seims, a veteran of the field and currently Senior Advisor for Population and Reproductive Health of the Packard Foundation, will share her thoughts on this question and propose some different ways in which donors and developing country governments can structure their aid agreements to improve the chances that these new priorities will be taken seriously.
