World Contraception Day 2016

Venue
Global

Did you know that more than 225 million girls and women in developing countries want to avoid pregnancy, but are not using safe and effective family planning methods? Investing in international reproductive health and family planning isn’t just the right choice, it’s the smart choice. 

Allowing women to choose whether, when, and how many children to have achieves progress on all of our global development goals. All of this helps break the cycle of poverty, and puts families, communities, and countries on a stronger, more prosperous and sustainable path.
