EDM number 378 in 2002-03, proposed by Chris McCafferty on 16/12/2002.

That this House congratulates UNFPA on its State of the World Population Report, 2002: People, Poverty and Possibilities: Making Development Work for the Poor; notes that closing the gender gap in education helps women to reduce fertility and improves child survival; further notes that in countries where girls are only half as likely to go to school as boys, there are on average 21.1 more infant deaths per 1,000 live births than in countries with no such gender gap; further notes that Jeffery Sachs, Kofi Annan's Special Adviser on the UN Millennium Development Goals, commented that women's access to reproductive health services is not just a worthy goal on its own, but an absolutely critical tool in alleviating poverty; and recognises that reproductive health, family planning services and population policies feed into all Millennium development goals.

This motion has been signed by a total of 44 MPs.
