The photo is sideways, but this is my latest read. Yes, it’s a little old- 1998 copyright. But my reproductive program management instructor recommended it, and I trust him. The book chronicles the global burden of disease from reproduction, and is an attempt to begin defining the scope of reproductive health. I already took a class that introduced me to the major indicators used in reproductive health, but I expect this will help me understand more about how to make measurements work, and to identify problems with published numbers. Of particulate interest is the inclusion of problems from the misuse of technology. I am eager to dive into this text.
