Ethiopian Government Working To Spread Benefits Of Family Planning

“…The Ethiopian Government’s leadership on family planning has been impressive, but there is still a lot of work to be done. Ethiopia is a culturally, religiously, and geographically diverse country. This diversity contributes to the complexity of expanding access to family planning and further complicates many of the challenges…,” Alisha Kramer, program manager and research assistant at the Center for Strategic & International Studies’ Global Health Policy Center, writes in the center’s “Smart Global Health” blog. Kramer is “in Ethiopia to examine the importance of family planning for women’s health and well-being, as well as the key role family planning plays in helping Ethiopia achieve broader health and development goals,” she notes (2/19).
