Abstract:Collected in this book are the framework papers prepared for the collaborative research project on 'Reproductive health, economic growth and poverty reduction in Africa', an initiative of the African Economic Research Consortium (AERC). The papers deal with the nature and scope of reproductive health, the processes through which reproductive health is accumulated, and the linkages between better reproductive health, economic growth and poverty reduction. An important argument is that enhancement of women's reproductive health is key to raising household incomes and improving health outcomes of the next generation.
