Pig intestines used as condoms?!? See this and more of History's Worst Contraceptives here: https://t.co/JZHqdN401r #WherestheFP #TBT

The face of vulnerability is adolescent girls & key populations. We need to think about #SDGs & what it means to live w full dignity. Prevention implies access to information, timely respectful services & understanding we are in a time of crisis. @UNFPA

We love the implant & all other forms of #contraception allowing millions to plan & space #pregnancies. How #empowering is that?! #WheresTheFP

Our wisdom: increasing access to #familyplanning helps women go further in their education, work & life! #WheresTheFP

A 16-year-old girl living with HIV asked for a hug. This is how people responded.


Leaving no one behind means placing women at the center of the decision-making spaces in the HIV response. https://t.co/kNhzGjBbrp #AIDS2018 @AIDS_Conference

With 1.3 billion people, China is the world’s most populous country, and government policies to limit population growth have significantly reduced the country’s birth rate. To ensure that individual rights are protected, in 2002, China enacted the Population and Family Planning Law, which establishes couples’ reproductive rights and safeguards their right to make informed and voluntary decisions about their reproductive health.

With support from the Ford Foundation, EngenderHealth partnered with China’s National Population and Family Planning Commission (NPFPC) to:

  • Build providers’ skills to ensure that clients make informed choices and voluntary decisions about their reproductive health.
  • Develop a training manual emphasizing gender equity, informed choice, sexuality, and clients’ rights.
  • Establish a core group of national trainers who have been educated in the project’s methodology. In addition to improving their own technical skills, the doctors and nurses who complete EngenderHealth’s training courses are trained to teach others, so that even one training event can have far-reaching effects.
  • Sponsor a series of workshops designed to advance the practice of client-centered service provision.

EngenderHealth’s work in China ended in 2007.
