This volume brings together two areas of health that are among the foci of current development efforts, as articulated by the Millennium Development Goals MDGs , namely sexual and reproductive health MDG 5: improve maternal health, target 2: achieve, by 2015, universal access to reproductive health ; and Gender MDG 3: promote gender equality and empower women . Few, if any, published books have dealt in a comprehensive way with public health aspects of these two strongly interrelated areas of health. Most published volumes devoted to sexual and reproductive health have a strong clinical focus, whereas books on gender tend to concentrate primarily on the socio-cultural and anthropological aspects of the subject. * Focuses on the relationship between sexual and reproductive behaviors and the resulting impact on populations and societies as a group * Provides a science-based approach to identifying appropriate response plans, adaptations, and mitigation steps for related behaviors *Explores the financial and societal impact of behavioral choices *Includes new preface specifically for this audience
