In search of human dignity : gender equity, reproductive health and healthy aging.
This paper analyzes the nine pillars of human dignity (sufficient food, potable water, shelter, sanitation, health services, healthy environment, education, employment and personal security), which humankind tries to establish by following nine approaches to reality (scientific, cultural, religious, ethical, economical, ecological, socio-critical, philosophical and political) in a world drastically changed by nine revolutions (demographic, scientific, technological, communication, global identity, environmental, contraceptive, reproductive health and gender equity).
The author's generation participated in these revolutions and contributed to the global intellectual process by which gender equity and reproductive health assumed a central role in world affairs.
A rapidly aging world population constitutes another major challenge.
Its likely impact on the very fundaments of our future social, economical, health and even political infrastructures is - as yet - incompletely comprehended by the international community.
The International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) has and will continue to have an indispensable role in assisting humankind to reach its ultimate goal : human dignity.
