"More than 200 million women worldwide don’t want to get pregnant but can’t get birth control — and so sometimes they die or suffer devastating injuries like obstetric fistulas." https://t.co/RdW8J6ZnvX via @NickKristof #endfistula #ideof

"Universal health coverage is a human right. No one should become poor because of poor health. But we all know that the reality today is very different. Half of the 🌍’s population lack access to quality essential health services"-@DrTedros #WHA72 #HealthForAll

"About 400,000 #abortions are carried out in unregulated environments each year in Uganda.... Nearly a quarter – 90,000 – of those lead to severe health complications. On average, four women and girls die each day." https://t.co/7C2omUelSj via @GlobalPress #SRHR #reprorights

Making Proud Choices for Teenage Pregnancy Prevention

In Austin and Dallas, we partner with Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas to help teens make healthy choices about their sexual and reproductive health. The Making Proud Choices curriculum addresses the prevention of teen pregnancy and of sexually transmitted infections (including HIV). EngenderHealth has adapted this evidence-based curriculum to include additional activities that help teens examine how harmful gender norms and unhealthy relationships can influence their risk of pregnancy. This highly effective curriculum is being taught to eighth- and ninth-grade students enrolled in KIPP Charter Schools. Our work is generously funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
