Population and human settlements

In 1990, the United Nations continued its concerted efforts in the area of population and human settlements. United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) activities focused on maternal and child health care and family planning, communication and education programmes, basic data collection, population dynamics programmes and the formulation and evaluation of population policies. During the year, UNFPA assisted nearly 3,800 country, regional and intercountry projects; about 500 new projects were approved and some 250 projects completed. UNFPA efforts concentrated especially on the needs of 56 priority countries, the majority of which were in Africa. The 1990 United Nations Population Award was conferred on Alfred Sauvy and the Mauritius National Family Health and Population Council.
