Since the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development, China has made efforts to publicize the conference's program of action and implement it in light of China's national conditions. The Program's basic principles and recommendations have been drawn upon in developing the country's population policies and documents. China is now trying to integrate its family planning program with socioeconomic development, the creation of harmonious families, and the alleviation of poverty. An holistic approach is being used in the population program, and the government is also trying to create a working mechanism in which publicity, education, services, and management are coordinated and integrated. Family planning staff training and grassroots level supervision have been bolstered, and infrastructural construction stepped up. Special attention has been given to the roles of nongovernmental organizations in population programs. China is taking a multifaceted approach to managing population issues.
