This report presents an overview of the Special Programme of Research, Development and Research Training in Human Reproduction's (HRP) work over the biennium 2002-2003. Chapter 1 looks at activities in the area of family planning. Chapter 2 outlines research activities carried out in the context of WHO's Making Pregnancy Safer initiative. Research on the control of sexually transmitted infections, including HIV, is described in Chapter 3. HRP's work on preventing unsafe abortion, which responds to the recommendations of the International Conference on Population and Development, is described in Chapter 4 and addressing the sexual and reproductive health needs of young people, particularly in developing countries, is outlined in Chapter 5. Finally, Chapter 6 describes how HRP works directly with countries to strengthen their capacity to undertake research in reproductive health
