India’s Family Planning Policies Could Focus More On Men, Provide More Contraceptive Options After Court-Ordered Closure Of Sterilization Camps

The Guardian: Will the closure of India’s sterilization camps end botched operations?
“…The Supreme Court’s verdict [ordering the government to shut down sterilization camps across India within three years] is a historic victory for women’s rights activists who have campaigned against sterilization camps for decades. The ruling could mean that, for the first time, India moves away from family planning policies that focus on women rather than men and provide a wider range of contraception, particularly in rural clinics…” (Doshi, 10/26).
