Summary Holding our Ground focuses on one of the most contested of the agreements hammered out at the International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo in 1994 - reproductive rights. But 10 years after the Cairo agreement, these rights still appear to be far from universal. The programme features reports from: the Philippines, a country with an average of over five children per family, and now at the epicentre of the battle over efforts to restrict access to family planning; Latvia, one of the new members of the EU, where taboos surrounding the subject of sex still hamper efforts to provide information for adolescents; Japan, where the falling birthrate is focusing attention again on the problems of childcare for working women; and India, where - despite laws designed to protect the girl child - the practice of selective abortion of female fetuses appears to be growing. The stories are linked by an interview with Thoraya Obaid - Executive Director of the UN Population Fund, and the first Saudi Arabian woman ever to head up a UN agency.
