Summary
The U.S. Agency for International Development, the Andrew F. Mellon Foundation, and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation asked the Committee on Population of the National Academy of Sciences/National Research Council to form the Panel on Reproductive Health, composed of a balanced, international group of experts from relevant disciplines. The panel's mandate is to assess the magnitude of the major reproductive health problems in developing countries and to recommend priorities for interventions and research to deal with those problems in different settings. As part of its research, the panel sponsored a Meeting on Reproductive Health Interventions, January 25-26, 1995, in Washington, D.C. This gave panel members and their guests a chance to listen to researchers, policy makers, and program managers with experience in selected areas of reproductive health in developing countries. There was no attempt at this meeting to cover the gamut of reproductive health problems and interventions; rather, it was designed to collect ideas and information on some key topics for the report. The panel chairs decided it would be useful at this meeting to address two relatively neglected sets of issues. One consists of current concerns for programs in both the health and family planning sectors, including the estimation of costs and effectiveness, efforts to improve the quality of services, and service integration. The other set of issues concerns the impacts on reproductive health of efforts carried on largely outside the structure of health services, such as efforts to deal with sexual coercion, education, and mass communication. This report summarizes the background papers and oral presentations, the comments of discussants, and the general discussion at the meeting. For clarity, we have not always followed in this text the order in which points were presented at the meeting, but instead have regrouped material under separate subject headings. This report is necessarily brief, and interested readers are referred to the cited works or to the participants for more information. The meeting was intended to elicit a wide range of views and provoke discussion, rather than to reach consensus on findings and recommendations, so the participants cannot be assumed to agree with all the statements reported here
