PRI Series Examines Fertility, Infertility In Africa

PRI’s “The World” features a three-part series examining fertility and infertility in Africa, which “has the highest fertility rate in the world, yet some nations also face extremely high rates of infertility,” according to the series summary. The series looks at how “African governments, charities, and health workers [are] giving couples more control over their reproduction” in three different countries. Part I examines the concept of family size in Ethiopia (Kelto, 8/15). Part II highlights efforts to engage men in women’s reproductive choices in Kenya (8/15). Part III focuses on infertility in South Africa (8/15). The series also features an interactive global fertility map (8/15).

The KFF Daily Global Health Policy Report summarized news and information on global health policy from hundreds of sources, from May 2009 through December 2020. All summaries are archived and available via search.
