The Population Council’s Robert H. Ebert Program on Critical Issues in Reproductive Health conducted research, provided technical assistance, and published reports and papers on sexual and reproductive health and rights. The program responded to an awareness that many important reproductive health problems—and the ways women experience them—had been neglected by policymakers, program planners, and practitioners. Reflecting a strong commitment to women’s rights and autonomy, and with an overarching focus on improving the quality of services in reproductive health programs, the Ebert Program focused on several areas that merited special attention: unwanted pregnancy, consequences of unsafe abortion, safe motherhood, postpartum care to meet the health needs of the mother and child, and programs to address sexually transmitted infections, including HIV/AIDS, within the larger context of women’s reproductive health. This series was published by the Population Council from 1989 through 2003.
