Improved Access To Contraception Can ‘Make A True Change For Women And Girls’

Noting the ongoing Clinton Global Initiative and U.N. General Assembly meetings in New York, WomanCare Global CEO Saundra Pelletier writes in the Huffington Post’s “Social Entrepreneurship” blog, “My hope is that it’s no coincidence that World Contraception Day falls in the middle of a week where leaders and innovators come together to talk about how to improve the world.” Recognized on September 26, World Contraception Day brings light to the fact “[t]here are more than 220 million women around the world who want modern contraception but cannot get it,” she says, adding, “We need to conclude this week in NY with significant commitments funded and a plan for implementation.” She adds, “WomanCare Global will be part of the global solution because we provide access to affordable, quality reproductive health products through a sustainable value chain in more than 100 countries. We look forward to working with partners to make a true change for women and girls” (9/24).
