Reproductive Rights and Reproductive Health gaps and failures in reproductive health care result in millions of deaths and permanent injuries, mostly to women in developing countries. The State of World Population 1997 report details progress and problems in attaining the right to reproductive and sexual health, and related rights to sexual and reproductive self-determination and security. It reviews the international human rights agreements that define and protect these rights, and examines the effects of denying them to millions of women and men.
