Fifteen years ago, the world came together at the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in Cairo, and agreed by consensus on a 20-year Programme of Action that integrated a comprehensive range of population, development and human rights issues – necessary for ensuring that each person lives a healthy and dignified life.

With only five years remaining, the Asia-Pacific High Level Forum agreed on key actions to accelerate progress towards the fulfillment of the ICPD Programme of Action and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). This declaration reaffirms the commitment of forum participants to fully implement ICPD’s Programme of Action by 2015.
