CGD President Discusses Importance Of Access To Contraception For Women To Achieve ‘Full Human Potential’

Center for Global Development’s “Views from the Center”: Access to Contraception is a Global Development Issue
Masood Ahmed, president of the Center for Global Development, discusses the importance of access to contraception for women to achieve “their full economic and human potential.” He concludes, “Development is about more than improved living standards or a better quality of life — it is being empowered to make choices about one’s own life. Ensuring that half the world’s population can exercise their choices about whether and when to bear children is a development goal that should be a priority for all” (3/7).
