Today, Dr. Fauci reaffirmed the US’s commitment to #globalhealth cooperation & pledged to remain in @who. He also promised to “support women’s and girls’ sexual and reproductive health & reproductive rights,” including revoking the harmful Global Gag Rule. http://bit.ly/3sUC6sy

In fact, access to a full range of contraceptive methods and education is critical to the well-being of youth and their communities in preventing sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and unplanned pregnancy. In some communities, contraceptive access for youth is also a means of survival, with pregnancy resulting in more deaths of adolescent females aged 15–19 than any other cause (Save the Children Fund, 2012).
