The International Center for Research on Women has provided leadership for more than twenty years in defining the connections between population, reproductive health, and gender issues, and demonstrating how and why these links should be taken into account in policies and programs. Unrestricted funds would enable the Center to continue to conduct research on the relationship between gender, reproductive health, population dynamics, and broader development outcomes; provide technical support to local partners; and contribute to advocacy efforts to increase political and financial support and improve policies for gender, reproductive health, and population issues. The Center's research priorities include exploring the connection between fertility declines, contraceptive use, and shifts in gender equality, and identifying pathways that improve life options for girls as they transition into adulthood.
