Abstract

I certainly believe that this book highlights some currently important issues of sexual and reproductive health relevant to Sri Lanka, which are also the main focus of the statement made by Nafis Sadik. The book titled “Sexual and Reproductive Research in Sri Lanka, Current Status, Challenges and Direction” includes selected research papers and abstracts presented and published by the Family Planning Association (FPA) of Sri Lanka, in national and international journals and conferences for the period 2010-2019. The launching of the book also recognises two significant matters. Firstly, the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2019 and this publication may be considered as a retrospect to the important objectives of the ICPD. Secondly, the Family Planning Association of Sri Lanka, an accredited member of International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), seeks to promote multiple aspects of reproductive health and improve the quality of life.
