Abstract

The article focuses on the International Conference on Population and Development held in El Cairo, Egypt, in 1994. The Conference addressed issues related to sexual and reproductive rights, actions to be adopted to improve the situation of young girls, the status of women, the situation of adolescents and gender equality as basic components to improve the sexual and reproductive health of the population. The concluding recommendations in this conference constitute the action program. This document also addresses some issues that generated long discussions to reach consensus during the conference. It summarizes the follow up performed on the action program in the following years and ends with the report of the Peruvian government and the civil society twenty years after the conference.
