UNFPA, Gates Foundation MOU Aimed At Improving Contraceptive Access Through Innovation

“…Innovation is the key to improving access to family planning services and contraceptives. … That’s exactly what the partnership that UNFPA and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation recently signed is all about. … UNFPA and the Gates Foundation will collaborate to develop and identify innovative approaches to allow for a wider choice of contraceptive methods and more availability in clinical and non-clinical settings…,” Babatunde Osotimehin, UNFPA executive director and U.N. under-secretary general, writes in the Gates Foundation’s “Impatient Optimists” blog (5/8).
