Abstract

Men in Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan: Reproductive Health Issues is a timely publication that assesses how well these counties have been able to get men to be an integral part of reproductive health programs. The publication was motivated, in part, by the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) held in Cairo. Among the goals of this conference were getting men to be supportive of their partners' reproductive health needs and promoting men's active involvement as sharing and responsible participants in family life. In determining men's roles in reproductive health, the authors consider three countries that, combined, make up approximately 20 percent of the world's population.
