Guaranteeing Rights at ICFP 2016

The connection between sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and maternal health, as well as their effects on women’s lives, cannot be overstated. Research shows up to a third of maternal injuries and deaths are preventable when women have access to contraception.[1] By meeting the unmet need for family planning, an estimated 1.1 million infant deaths could be prevented.[2] Alongside these critical health benefits, enabling women to delay childbirth and avoid unwanted pregnancies empowers them to decide what their own futures hold.
