International Family Planning Focus In 2013

“In many ways, 2012 was a banner year for international family planning and reproductive health,” Philip Harvey, president and co-founder of DKT International, and Christopher Purdy, executive vice president of DKT International, write in a post in RH Reality Check, highlighting the London Family Planning Summit and noting contraception “even became an issue in the U.S. presidential election.” Looking forward to 2013, they write that the focus will remain on commitments from the London Family Planning Summit, the role of the private sector in the delivery of products and services, new contraceptive technologies, access to medical abortion, and family planning aid to middle-income countries (1/3).
