“The U.N. Population Fund, which has seen all funding cut by the Trump administration, says donors have committed $207 million to help expand family planning services and strengthen national health programs. But the agency, known as UNFPA, says it still needs $700 million for contraceptives and other family planning supplies for 2017-2020. International donors made the pledges Tuesday at a Family Planning Summit in London but the total wasn’t announced until late Thursday…” (Lederer, 7/14).
