  Title Spotlight: El Salvador Type Journal Article

  Abstract PIP: As of mid-1998, El Salvador had a population of 5.8 million people residing in a land area of 8000 sq. miles. There were 29 births and 4 deaths per 1000 population, as well as 41 infant deaths for every 1000 live births, and a population growing in size at 2.5% annually. The average woman has 3.9 births during her reproductive lifetime and life expectancy is 65 years for men and 72 years for female. With 39% of El Salvador's population under age 15 years, it will continue to grow rapidly even as birth rates decline. The proportion of urban residents in El Salvador is expected to grow beyond the 1994 level of 45%. Population growth has intensified competition for farmland and jobs, with extreme poverty forcing Salvadoran farmers and laborers to make choices which are beneficial in the short term, but which may cause long-term environmental damage. Human and chemical wastes, often untreated and unregulated, pollute 90% of the rivers and almost all topsoil and drinking water in heavily populated areas. 66% of farmland in the mountainous area is eroded, and the resulting pollution and agricultural runoff threaten shellfish and seafood businesses close to the coast. While forests once covered 85% of El Salvador, now only less than 5% is forest, and much of the cleared land is so degraded that there is little hope of restoring endangered plant and animal species. Most of the country's workers are employed in agriculture, but industrial parks are helping the country's economic growth. 74% of Salvadoran men and 70% of women are literate, school enrollment levels are low, and about 4% of the country's gross national product comes from official development assistance. The El Salvador Environment Fund was created in 1994 to support small projects for environmental protection and child development.

  Title Sexuality education on the job Type Journal Article

  Abstract PIP: The Asociacion Demografica Salvadorena (ADS) has been working with the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) in El Salvador since November 1995 to provide sexual and reproductive health services to the country's working classes. UNFPA funding is provided through the Salvadoran government. ADS has entered the commercial and labor sectors to provide sexual and reproductive health services, and expand related public education programs to marginalized working class urban residents of El Salvador's Zona Central. The project has thus far created 25 Reproductive Health Units (UDESAR) in a number of companies, overseen by trained personnel who offer family planning and counseling services, including family planning methods, and the detection of cervical/uterine cancer, breast self-examination, HIV/STD prevention, and the determination of reproductive risk. Volunteers trained by ADS in sexual and reproductive health from a gender perspective, including decision-making and raising women's levels of self-esteem and decision-making capabilities in family planning, safe sex, and general sexual health, help project leaders by educating and motivating co-workers. ADS's involvement in promoting reproductive health in El Salvador has also given the organization an opportunity to broaden its relationship with international agencies.
