The principal objective of the UNFPA Fourth Country Programme (CP4) was to implement a client-oriented informed choices approach to reproductive health/family planning services for both men and women in 32 selected counties of China in accordance with the ICPD Plan of Action. The overall aim of the programme was to assist the government of China in implementing ICPD principles in the area of reproductive health and women's empowerment, specifically to meet unmet need through comprehensive and integrated client-centered reproductive health services. The long-term goal is to expand and make available quality oriented reproductive health services to Chinese men and women on a voluntary basis and in line with the principles, approaches and recommendations of the ICPD programme of action. As a part of the project implementation in 32 counties of 22 Chinese provinces, the State Family Planning Commission (SFPC) carried out a baseline (1998), midterm review (2001) and an endline survey (2002). These assessed and monitored changes in indicators related to reproductive health and family planning and measured the impact of the programme interventions. This fact sheet summarises the key findings of the baseline and endline surveys.
