Management Institute of Population and Development

(A unit of Parivar Seva Sanstha)


Population concerns are central in the search for a nation’s stability, whether in the context of poverty alleviation, economic growth, employment, improving individual quality of life or social harmony. International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) and the UN Millennium Development Goals have reiterated that widespread poverty, accompanied by unemployment, malnutrition, illiteracy, low status of women, exposure to environmental risks and limited access to social and health services, including family planning poses the biggest challenge to population stabilization efforts. All these factors reinforce the vicious cycle of high levels of fertility, morbidity and mortality, and lead to low economic productivity, thus contributing to the growth of poverty. Therefore, to speed up the pace of sustainable development and poverty alleviation, there is a need to integrate population into economic and development strategies.

Parivar Seva Sanstha, a premier, national organization with specialization in Reproductive Health, successfully working in the country for the last thirty years has responded to this challenge by establishing the Management Institute of Population and Development (MIPD) in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India.
