This year’s report examines countries’ achievements and constraints in implementing the Cairo consensus, including efforts to improve the quality and reach of reproductive health programmes, promote women’s rights, improve maternal and child health and strengthen HIV prevention efforts. UNFPA’s report makes the case that mobilizing political will and increased funding by the international community is crucial if countries are to maintain and build on the gains of the past decade.

Ensuring the health and well-being of the world’s adolescents and young people, equipping them with life skills, and creating educational and employment opportunities for them is a fundamental necessity in meeting the development challenges of the 21st century. The ICPD gave unprecedented attention to adolescents’ diverse needs with regard to reproductive health, as both a human rights priority and a practical necessity.
