Asia-Pacific Population Journal

For over two decades, the Asia-Pacific Population Journal (APPJ) has been taking the pulse of population and social issues unfolding in the region. Published by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), APPJ brings out high quality, evidence-based and forward-looking articles relevant for population policies and programmes in Asia and the Pacific. Prominent population experts, award-winning demographers, as well as lesser known researchers have been contributing articles, documenting over the years the evolution of thinking in this important sphere.



This paper contains a review of the key trends in sexual and reproductive health and rights in Asia and the Pacific since the adoption of the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in 1994. In the paper, key areas of progress, as well the unfinished agenda of ICPD and emerging issues in the region are identified and policy recommendations to effectively address them are provided.
