ABSTRACT
This article discusses a study on the reproductive health in the Caribbean and the Gulf countries. Reproductive health has evolved from involving contraceptive use, family planning, abortion and related fields. Both regions have experienced declines in fertility and contraceptive prevalence among married women 15-49 years old was higher for the Caribbean than the Gulf countries. The study also found that total expenditure on health as a percentage of GDP increased slightly for most of the study countries.
