Development programmes are shifting from family planning and maternal and child health programmes to reproductive health care. Increasing numbers of NGOs are adopting this approach, and its positive effects are set to continue into the future. Policy recommendations from the 1994 Cairo conference are set in the broader context of gender equity and development. Mosses’ article defines reproductive health, examines donors’ responses, and takes the reader through a history of reproductive health. It shows why a holistic approach to reproductive health is so important to population policy, and also how to deliver the programme in practice.
