Finds that gender gaps as well as those between rich and poor may undermine advances made since the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) that took place in 1994 in Cairo, Egypt. Reviews the implementation of programs adopted in Cairo that focused on global reproductive health, family planning and efforts to reduce poverty. Notes that resources for reproductive health programmes have declined and this, combined with growing poverty among the world's poorest countries will hamper national and international efforts to make long-term progress in achieving sexual and reproductive health and rights for all.
