Abstract: Perhaps, one of the most well-known projects today for planned change is the United Nations Millennium project with eight Millennium Developmental Goals to be achieved by 2015. Of the eight goals, three relate to reproductive health. This study assesses the effect of selected factors on current reproductive health levels in developing countries. Using data for 122 countries, three geographic clusters distinct in reproductive health characteristics were identified. We found that countries with high level of reproductive health enjoyed high levels of reproductive rights. Our findings underscore the relevance of a human rights-based approach towards reproductive health Millennium Development Goals.
