ROUNDTABLE ON POPULATION POLICIES, PROGRAMMES AND HIV/AIDS

The second roundtable took place in Berlin, Germany from 28 September - 1 October 1993 and focused on population policies, programmes and HIV/AIDS. Approximately 40 technical experts and representatives from developing countries and selected developed countries, NGOs and UN agencies attended the meeting. The purpose of the meeting was to examine the short- and medium-term demographic impact of the AIDS epidemic and to explore the implication of AIDS on population and development policies and on maternal and child health and family planning programmes.

The report of this meeting will not be distributed until late October, however, indications are that the report will concentrate on findings, policy statements and conclusions that will be used as inputs for the ICPD final document.
