Full Document (English)
This brief examines the extent to which the 1994 ICPD has shaped reproductive health policies and programs in five Francophone African countries?Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Côte d?Ivoire, and Mali. All five countries have made significant progress in developing reproductive health policies, but only limited progress in implementation. This brief discusses the policy process, program implementation, financial resources, participation and coordination, and understanding of, acceptance of, and opposition to reproductive health.
