    The central themes in the field of population and development relate to the links between population dynamics on the one hand, and economic and social development on the other. We ask questions about how each influences the other, and what the implications of these links might be. In order to observe, evaluate or predict these links, however, we need to know how to measure and define the population dynamics that we are concerned with. This module therefore introduces the basic quantitative elements of demography, which is the scientific study of human populations.
    The module outlines the main characteristics of a population that are important in demography-----population size, structure, distribution and change. It then discusses the three processes which affect these characteristics-----fertility, mortality and migration. We will look at the terminology, measures and methodological issues for each of these, and will consider some examples from different current and historical populations around the world.
    The UNFPA’s Distance Learning course on “ICPD and Humanitarian Action: Emergency Preparedness, Response and Recovery” is the seventh course in the UNFPA’s Distance Learning Programme on Population Issues (DLPI). In this course, you will explore answers to those questions, and more. The course attempts to help you understand what makes certain populations more vulnerable when a disaster strikes, and how the sexual and reproductive health rights of women and girls need to be given urgent attention during those crises.

    While the course may raise more questions than it actually answers, the course designers hope that, on completion of this course, you will be better able to prepare for the possibility of an emergency in your country, and, if a humanitarian emergency should occur, that you will be better prepared to respond to it and to help affected populations transition out of the emergency.
    Welcome to this Distance learning course on Maternal Deaths, “Reducing Maternal Deaths: Selecting Priorities, Tracking progress”. It is one of six courses which make up the UNFPA Project on “Distance Learning System on Population Issues” The Course Team have estimated that the average length of time you will take to study the course will be around 40 hours. Normally people find that it is possible to study such a course at the rate of about 5-7 hours per week so you should expect your study to take about 7-8 weeks. The Course Team have split the course up into three modules as shown in Figure 1. The length of each module in terms of estimated study time will be indicated to you before you start, to help you plan your study sessions.
    Welcome to this Distance learning course on Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health (ASRH). It is the fifth course of the UNFPA Project on “Distance Learning System on Population Issues” The Course Team have estimated that the average length of time you will take to study the course will be around 40 hours. Normally people find that it is possible to study such a course at the rate of about 5-7 hours per week so you should expect your study to take about 7-8 weeks. The Course Team have split the course up into five modules as shown in Figure 1. The length of each module in terms of estimated study time will be indicated to you before you start, to help you plan your study sessions. You should study all five modules.
    Welcome to this Distance learning course on ADVOCACY: action, change and commitment. It is the fourth course of the UNFPA Project on “Distance Learning System on Population Issues”
    The Course Team have estimated that the average length of time you will take to study the course will be around 40 hours. Normally people find that it is possible to study such a course at the rate of about 5-7 hours per week so you should expect your study to take about 7-8 weeks. The Course Team have designed the course to be in a printed format and have split the course up into three modules as shown in Figure 1. The length of each module in terms of estimated study time will be indicated to you before you start, to help you plan your study sessions. You should study all three modules.
    Welcome to this Distance learning course on Gender, ‘Gender Mainstreaming: Taking Action, Getting Results’. It is part of the UNFPA Distance Learning on Population Issues (DLPI) programme.
    Gender equality is a core commitment of the United Nations System and UNFPA and is upheld in international consensus agreements and international conventions managed by the UN. This course will walk you through an understanding of what gender issues are, why they are important to tackle and mainstream in development practice and what tools are available to this end.
    The key guiding documents affirming gender equality are highlighted in the box below and will be given detailed attention in the different modules of the course:
    Welcome to UNFPA’s course on Responding to HIV and AIDS. This course is part of a set of Distance Learning Courses on Population Issues (DLPI). The other courses are (1) Sexual and Reproductive Health, (3) Gender Mainstreaming, (4) Advocacy, (5) Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health, and (6) Maternal Mortality. A seventh course on Population and Development will be produced. This guide explains how the course is organised, suggests how to work through it and ways of working with your Tutor. Importantly for you, it contains the final assessment which you will need to complete to be awarded a certificate. Please take some time to go through this guide before you start to work on the course materials (four modules). After studying the modules, return to this guide for the final assignments.
    The Course Team has estimated that the average length of time you will need to study the course will be around 40 hours. Normally people find that it is possible to study such a course at the rate of about 5-7 hours per week so you should expect your study to take about 7-8 weeks. The Course Team has tried to make the materials as clear as possible, but it is inevitable that you will find some parts harder to understand than others. Indeed you may want extra help and this is where the tutor support services will aid you. When you are studying the material, try to find somewhere quiet and comfortable to work. If possible, try to study for periods of between 1 and 1 ½ hours to avoid loss of concentration. As UNFPA staff, you are allowed by policy to study distance learning materials during work hours. Please agree on learning hours with your supervisor. Reflect on the content of the material as you read it, and try to think about examples from your own experience which are similar to those given in the text. If after re-reading something several times you do not understand it, contact your tutor for clarification. The Course Team has tried to write this course to meet a wide range of different needs. Although students may come from different backgrounds, it is probable that your reasons for studying this course are similar: to learn more about the concept of sexual and reproductive health and become a more effective advocate for it.
