This summary of the full 'So what' report of 2004 provides policy-makers and programme mangers with four recommendations as to how to integrate gender concerns into reproductive health programmes. It highlights interventions that have had a positive impact on reproductive health outcomes, whether by exploiting, accommodating or transforming gender inequities, in four categories: maternal morbidity and mortality, unintended pregnancy, STIs/HIV/AIDS and quality of care.
