The State of World Population 2008 shares the principles of earlier United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization and United Nations Development Programme reports. It is important to analyse the varied roles of culture in social relationships and the ways in which culture influences individual and social choices. This report focuses on putting
culturally sensitive approaches into practice. It addresses some of the everyday circumstances in which culture affects not only social relationships, but development issues such as gender inequalities, maternal health, fertility, ageing and poverty.
