• Straight Talk on Family Planning and Religion at ICFP 2018

    Kigali, RWANDA – 12 NOVEMBER 2018 (CCIH) – Faith-based organizations have provided family planning services as part of basic healthcare for decades.

How does the faith community talk about family planning in a way that overcomes negative misperceptions?

The discussion was organized in collaboration with Christian Connections for International Health. https://youtu.be/R2xDnrnTAAA
