UNFPA Post Discusses Status Of Cairo Goals To Advance Women’s Health, Rights

United Nations Population Fund: Twenty-five years ago, leaders promised to advance women’s health and rights. Have they delivered?
This post highlights the status of five goals the Programme of Action adopted 25 years ago at the International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo. The goals, aimed at helping improve the health and rights of women and girls globally, include: reducing maternal deaths, eliminating violence against women and girls, ending harmful practices against women and girls, ending the unmet need for family planning, and advancing gender equity. The post notes, “Although important gains have been made, many of the goals laid out in that document have not been met” (7/10).
