of Population Communications International (PCI), premiers today, presenting news, features and commentary useful to international journalists
reporting on population issues.
The service will make the connections between the social, economic, scientific, and political factors that contribute to spiraling population growth.

Population experts agree that the world population will not stabilize until the middle of the 21st century, presenting substantial challenges to all nations, the developed and the developing.
Global Intersections highlights innovative proposals to overcoming barriers to better family planning, and improved sexual and reproductive health.
