Chapter Summary

Reproductive health care plays an important role in helping people to maintain their reproductive health rights, in addition to protecting their reproductive health. In the form of a documentary retrospective review, this chapter covers some of the facets of sexual and reproductive health services in China. It explains the trajectory of major historical events and changes that took place over the past two to three decades in China, most notably following the milestone of the International Conference of Population and Development (ICPD) in Cairo in 1994. The chapter describes contributions from key players, such as various Chinese women's groups and discusses the significant stages of development pertaining to maternal and child health (MCH) and rural migrant populations. Finally, Yunnan Province is described as an example of how reproductive health concepts and theories have been introduced, innovated and widely applied in a frontier province of China.

Keywords:China's reproductive health services; maternal and child health (MCH); Yunnan province
