Thank you for the incredible support we have received today and throughout the year! We are passionate about sexual and reproductive health and rights, and we love working with others who are, too. Together, we're making a real difference for real people. Happy #GivingTuesday!

Today is #GivingTuesday, a day to give back & to kick off the giving season. You can give the gift of safe, secure #reproductivehealth to women and girls around the world, and whatever amount you give, it will be doubled.
#familyplanning
#SRHR

Sexual and gender-based violence undermines the health, dignity, security and autonomy of women and girls.
Yet #SGBV remains shrouded in a culture of silence.
📣 Speaking out
brings us a step closer towards justice & healing.

We’re inspired! Over the last four days, we asked delegates at #ICFP2018 to share their commitments to #familyplanning. We heard from youth advocates, leaders, activists, scientists, researchers, and more!

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. From January 25-28, 2016, delegates from international governments, UN agencies, and NGOs including EngenderHealth gathered in Nusa Dua, Indonesia for the International Conference on Family Planning to discuss bridging these gaps and addressing unmet need for family planning.

When Everything Must Go Right So Nothing Goes Wrong

The latest disturbing news coming from Chhattisgarh, India, reminds us that despite being 20 years post-ICPD, we global health professionals have more to do to ensure reproductive rights, choice, and quality of care. And as the story goes—as it has too many times before—the devastating consequences are borne by mostly poor, rural women. It’s unconscionable.
