|“Faith and Family Planning”
Thursday, May 11, 9-10:30 a.m. EDT
About 225 million women worldwide have unmet family planning needs. Out of 213 million pregnancies, 40 percent are unintended. And about half of these unintended pregnancies end in unsafe abortions, which cause maternal deaths and injuries.
Faith-based organizations can help close the gap in family planning needs and contribute to improved health outcomes, especially among women and girls.
This webinar will focus on the family planning programs and policies of Catholic, Protestant and Muslim organizations working in Rwanda, Kenya, Zambia and Cameroon.
