Devex Interviews UNFPA Executive Director About Family Planning’s Role In SDGs, Future Of Funding

Devex: Q&A: UNFPA’s Babatunde Osotimehin on family planning in the face of uncertainty
“…Among those speaking [last week at the She Decides conference] was Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin, executive director of the U.N. Population Fund and former minister of health of Nigeria. He told Devex that the conference and fund was not about abortion: ‘This is (about) sexual and reproductive health and rights — the whole range of services — and empowering women to take charge of their lives; that is what it was about,’ he said. With the future of U.S. contributions to UNFPA also unclear, Dr. Osotimehin spoke to Devex about the role of family planning in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and how to shore up programs in uncertain times…” (Abrahams, 3/6).
