UNFPA China Policy Brief: Towards a normal sex ratio at birth in China

Publication

Five modules – an overview as well as standards and guidelines for the health, police and justice, social services, and coordination and governance sectors – were finalized in December 2015 and launched at the Global Conference on Ending Violence against Women in Istanbul (co-organized by UNFPA, UNW and the Government of Turkey).
