IntraHealth Senior Manager Discusses Importance Of Investing In, Accelerating Family Planning

IntraHealth International’s “VITAL”: 11 Billion, Ready or Not: We Need To Put Family Planning on the Fast Track
Corinne Mahoney, senior manager for communications and knowledge management at IntraHealth International, discusses the importance of investing in and accelerating family planning and reproductive health strategies. Mahoney writes, “The world’s population didn’t explode because of women’s reproductive choices. It exploded due to a lack of choice. … When women have a say in whether and when to become pregnant, fertility rates go down. … Family planning should always be a personal and voluntary choice” (7/9).
