This article consists of a description of the main teaching activities of demography in Brazil, and also deals with benchmarks regarding curricula and institutional arrangements. The teaching of demography in the country brings together several different modalities, from formal graduate courses in universities to short informative courses for local political administration personnel. Abep has played an important role in the process by promoting inter-institutional cooperation and enhancing the spread of demography to the various regions in Brazil. New forms of institutional arrangements and technologies have been suggested to decentralize this type of education in a way that will maximize human resources in the most needy regions.
