Chapter Summary

This chapter traces some of the important trends in population and health studies that have emerged in the past decade in both the world of policy that is relevant and critical scholarship. It highlights areas of intersection between health and population and considers the influence of gender ideologies on both. The connections with poverty and war are clear when looking at women's health outcomes in Arab and Muslim countries. Population and reproductive health have always featured as a core component of public health programs and research. The situation of women in Arab and Muslim countries and societies has been central to population research, particularly over the last decade. Education is another area that exemplifies important changes in the status of women. The field of population and health sciences has embraced the social, economic and political contexts in which issues of reproduction, movement, and health are transacted.
