Population Dynamics & Reproductive Health

Population, Reproductive Health and Poverty

Progress towards goals 4 (reducing child mortality) and 5 (improving maternal health) of the millennium development goals (MDGs) has been generally slow in sub-Saharan Africa.  To meet these and other MDGs, sub-Saharan Africa’s best hope remains its vast and untapped Human Capital. Yet, about 4 million infants and children continue to die annually from preventable causes, whilst unchecked unintended pregnancy increasingly contributes to unsafe abortion and consequently poor maternal health outcomes. Emerging evidence asserts that the disparity in key family planning and sexual reproductive health indicators is widening, making it clear that our Human Capital has been and is under threat. We need to focus our efforts toward providing robust scientific evidence to guide crucial policy generation and implementation to curb the needless hemorrhage. In doing this we would not only have a fighting chance at meeting the MDGs but we would also have saved and positively impacted countless lives.

Current Project

Financial Resource Flows for Population Activities

Program: Population Dynamics & Reproductive Health


The objective of the Resource Flows project is to monitor progress achieved by donors and developing countries on the fulfillment of the 1) ICPD programme of action (1994), 2) United Nations General Assembly Special Session Declaration of Commitment on HIV/AIDS (2001) and 3) relevant Millennium Development Goals (2000).

This is done by collecting data and reporting on donor assistance and domestic expenditures for population activities in developing countries. The project also aims to strengthen the role of research institutes based in developing countries. Within the context of the resource flows project, The Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute (NIDI) has entrusted specific domestic data collection and processing-related activities to APHRC. NIDI’s principal mandate is to study population issues, with a special emphasis on population-related social developments that are relevant to policy-making at both national and international levels. The project ‘Financial Resource Flows for Population Activities’ is part of NIDI’s research focus on ‘projections, migration and health’.
