Lancet. 2007 Feb 3; 369(9559):368.We fully agree with the Viewpoint by Kent Buse and colleagues about the need for agencies working in sexual and reproductive health policy to engage in applied political analysis as part of their core activities. We would like to draw your attention to the work of the United Nation Population Fund (UNFPA). UNFPA's country office in Guatemala used a form of interest-group analysis to plan and facilitate the adoption of that country's first social development and population law in 2001. UNFPA's Strategic Planning Office, with six country offices, has introduced interest-group analysis to scan the environment and engage with key players who influence the implementation of goals agreed at the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in 1994. The approach has been applied to issues including early marriage and gender-based violence. In short, UNFPA, as the agency primarily responsible for sexual and reproductive health policy, is doing what Buse and colleagues recommend. (excerpt)
