Summary/Abstract: The term reproductive health was introduced at the International Conference on Population and Development held under the auspices of the United Nations in Cairo in 1994. A new conceptual approach was established in order to secure a balance between micro and macro reproductive needs and goals, as well as individual rights and responsibilities in the sphere of health, partner relationship and parenthood. The Programme of Action resulted from it and was adopted on the same occasion. What effects did the messages from Cairo have on the state of reproductive health of the population in Serbia? An analysis of the state and trends of the ten most important indicators in this field indicate that expected breakthroughs have not been made. If any were made, they have been registered in the last few years and mostly dealt with the stabilization of values of certain indicators, but on unfavourable level. The continuing decrease of AIDS death rate makes a real exception. However, this does not lessens the significance, but confirms the relevance and topicality of the Programme of Action, especially in Serbia.
