Demographic Transition, Population Policy and Fertility Change in Iran
Since the adoption of a new population policy in 1988, Iran’s population growth rate dropped dramatically from 3.2 percent in 1986 to1.2 percent in 2001 and 1.1 percent in 2006.This reduction in an Islamic developing country in the Middle East is one of the fastest declines in the world.
Now I am working to do an analysis of the population’s policy in Iran. We look back to explore the determination of the policy, how this policy got into the agenda, were initiated and formulated and what is the policy content. For this exploration we use the health policy triangle method, in this approach actors are in the center of the policy and context, content and process are on the corners of the triangle. Learning about Iran experience can be useful for adaptation population policy in the Islamic world. Many developing countries with fast growing population can profit by learning from Iran’s model in promoting population stability.
