International Co-operation in Health

This chapter addresses the process by which reproductive health came to prominence in the early 1990s, focusing on the international actors involved and the process of negotiation between them. It examines two high priority areas of reproductive health care in detail: efforts to reduce maternal mortality and efforts to integrate HIV/STI and family planning services. In so doing, the chapter aims to illustrate two features of international cooperation in health: first, how the process of global agenda-setting was driven by a small set of international actors with particular ideologies; and second, how, despite relatively simple and cheap technologies being available, this process of agenda setting limited the effectiveness with which appropriate interventions were implemented.

Keywords:   reproductive health, international policy, unwanted pregnancy, maternal mortality, HIV, sexually transmitted infections, health policy
