The generation and application of knowledge is crucial to the design of cost-effective policies and programs. For almost 60 years, the Population Council has undertaken rigorous and influential research on a broad range of population and reproductive health issues in order to improve the health and well-being of current and future generations. These funds will support the Population Council's Reproductive Health and Poverty, Gender, and Youth programs to continue to strengthen access to family planning and other reproductive health services; reduce maternal mortality and ensure the reproductive and sexual rights of women and their partners; ensure a safe, healthy, and productive transition to adulthood for adolescents; and promote gender equity in the context of sex, health and social well-being. The Population Council seeks to maximize the impact of its demographic studies, reproductive health research, technical assistance, development of new programs, and advocacy for change by carrying out the work in close collaboration with scientists, program managers and policymakers in the developing world.
