An international university, the Secretary-General said, would be devoted to the Charter objectives of peace and progress. It would be staffed with professors from many nations and all parts of the world.

Family Planning Photo Credit: Population Council When women have access to family planning, everyone benefits. Women and children are healthier.
Families and communities can invest more in education and health care. And poverty is reduced. They may lack access to contraceptive options, may face family or community opposition to family planning, or may be concerned about potential or real side effects.
For 65 years, the Population Council has been changing the way the world thinks about voluntary family planning. Today, there is renewed global support for high-quality programs that provide information, services, and contraceptive supplies—and the Council plays an important role in expanding access to these programs.
We help design the most effective voluntary family planning services worldwide.
For example, the Council is leading a five-country, six-year research consortium to generate policy-relevant evidence that improves access to family planning in Bangladesh, Ghana, India, Kenya, and Senegal.
We develop, test, and introduce new contraceptive options. The Council is currently in the final stages of developing a one-year contraceptive vaginal ring that will provide, for the first time, a woman-controlled long-acting reversible contraceptive.
Our researchers are also evaluating the acceptability of the progesterone vaginal ring, another Council-developed, user-controlled contraceptive for lactating women, and exploring how best to introduce this new technology in key countries in Africa.
We work with partners around the world to advance the goal of universal access to reproductive health services. These partnerships are improving the delivery of family planning information, contraceptives, and reproductive health services.A national poverty line for South Africa 3 The proposed approach It is proposed that the official poverty line should be constructed as a measure of the money income required to attain a basic minimal standard of living–.
