Lack of access to family planning drives inequity locally and globally
As a result of the neglect of family planning, the population of the least developed countries is growing especially rapidly (2.8 to 6.1 billion by 2100). It is possible that in the second half of the 21st century rising death rates in the least developed countries could roll back many of the achievements in global health that have been made in the past 60 to 70 years.
This presentation will discuss impact of access to family planning on achieved family size, and the impact of family size on educational and economic progress, in the context of increasing inequity between the least developed countries and the rest of the world.
