The 2nd Annual Asia Pacific Conference on Reproductive and Sexual Health: Critiques, Challenges, and Cautious Optimism

The 2nd Annual Asia Pacific Conference on Reproductive and Sexual Health: Critiques, Challenges,... Population Review Volume 42, Numbers 1-2, 2003 Type: Report pp. 36-44 Author: Jill Keesbury, Ph.D. Affiliation: USAID Development Information Services, Academy for Educational Development Corresponding author/address: (keesbury@comcast.net) Introduction From October 6-10, 2003 almost 1,500 delegates, primarily from Asia and the Pacific, gathered in Bangkok for the 2nd Annual Asia Pacific Conference on Reproductive and Sexual Health (APCRSH.) With only a handful of attendees from the United States and Europe, the debate at the APCRSH provided unique insight into what are perceived to be the overarching issues and challenges to achieving reproductive and sexual health in Asia. Because many of the issues that were raised in Bangkok have global implications, or were specifically targeted at donor countries, the following summary is intended to share the central points of this debate with a broader international audience. The overall tenor of the APCRSH was one of cautious optimism, where the progress of the reproductive health approach over the past decade was juxtaposed against the present challenges posed by growing fundamentalism and shifting global priorities. An undercurrent of disappointment also ran through the proceedings, as delegates recognized the region's failure to achieve the ambitious goals set out at the 1994 Cairo International http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Population Review Sociological Demography Press
