USAID Works To Improve Young People’s Access To Reproductive Health, Family Planning Services

U.S. Department of State’s “DipNote”: Empowering Youth: Expanding Access to Reproductive Health
Ellen Starbird, director of the Office of Population and Reproductive Health at USAID, discusses the agency’s efforts to improve youth’s access to family planning and reproductive health services. “…When we support young people’s aspirations and engage them in the global conversation on family planning, they better understand the importance of delaying the age when they have their first child and spacing pregnancies. This not only will improve health outcomes, but will enable girls to remain in school, get jobs, and meaningfully participate within their communities…” (8/11).
