Guttmacher Analysis Examines Faith-Based Groups’ Roles In Family Planning Services

“Contrary to public perception, faith-based organizations from diverse religious backgrounds are key players in the provision of family planning services around the world, and those based in the United States advocate for increased U.S. assistance in this area to boost global health, according to a new Guttmacher Institute analysis,” a Guttmacher press release states. As part of the analysis, author Sneha Barot, a Guttmacher policy analyst, “provides examples of different USAID-supported faith-based initiatives or organizations and their value in promoting family planning in Liberia, Afghanistan, Nepal and Rwanda,” according to the press release (12/17).
