Description

Reflections on Population is written by a former Executive Director of the United Nations Fund for Population Activities, which is a sequel to International Population Assistance: The First Decade, released in 1979. This book mainly focuses on providing reflections on the work of the UN Fund. Specifically, it tackles population growth and structure, fertility, women’s status, family, and morbidity and mortality. Programs spearheaded by the Fund in promoting knowledge and implementation of population policies and programs are then presented and discussed. This text will be very invaluable to those interested in studying population.
