The world population surpassed the seven billion mark in 2011, yet many women and couples still lack access to reproductive health services. These facts have profound implications for maternal and child health, environmental quality, and food security. Global Population and Reproductive Health provides an introduction to an important and timely public health topic. The text is unique in that it explores the inextricable link between population and reproductive health – a connection that is often overlooked – as well as their impact on global and local environmental issues. Students will come away with a clear understanding of the relationships among all these issues, and the vital need for integrated policies and international cooperation. Contents Include: 1. Overview 2. Measures and Theories 3. Health 4. Related Issues 5. Policies
