Promote policies and programmes pertaining to: improving autonomy and responsibility of both women and men in their decisions on reproduction, in particular access to primary health services and family planning; integrating the concept of "quality of life" in its widest sense in a new approach to social development, and providing the most deprived populations with conditions which respect the dignity of human life; prioritizing an approach which takes into account demographic variables, socio-economic evolution and environmental changes; deepening the ethical dimension of problems inherent in the population crisis, including individual and collective rights and responsibilities, universalizing fundamental values, reduction of inequalities in and between nations and preserving the interests and potential of future generations.
