Population Association of Pakistan (PAP) is proud to present the proceedings of the first ever Population Research Conference held at the Aga Khan University from 24–26 Oct, 2000.

The basic theme of the conference has reflected the futuristic approach of population scholars and activists. The scientific sessions on the conference ranged from the more conventional demographic areas of infant mortality, fertility and family planning, migration and urbanization, population and development, safe motherhood to more recent interest issues such as reproductive health, gender, and sexually transmitted infections. The Conference was widely attended by delegates from all over the Pakistan and also by several researchers from abroad.
