The principles of the ICPD affirm “that all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights”, are entitled to all rights and freedoms as set forth in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, without distinction of any kind. These principles underscore the urgent need to eradicate all forms of discrimination and assert that the principal aim of population-related goals and policies is to improve the quality of life of all people.
