Kindly Invite You to a Lunch Lecture on

Worlds Apart: Reproductive Health and Rights in an Age of Inequality – State of World Population 2017

The 2030 Agenda for sustainable development and its accompanying 17 Sustainable Development Goals are the world’s blueprint for equitable, inclusive development that leaves no one behind.

Inequality blocks the path to the world we want. It is a complex phenomenon, reinforced by diverse forms of disparity – between the sexes, between races and ethnicities, and between urban and rural residents.

This year’s State of World Population analyzes the linkages between inequality and reproductive health.
