CONTRIBUTION TO FAMILY PLANNING
The Packard Foundation’s Reproductive Health program supports organizations that focus on improving the quality of and expanding access to voluntary contraception, comprehensive sexuality education, and abortion care by strengthening service delivery, building leadership and advocacy capacity, and shifting social and cultural norms to allow women and youth to make their own reproductive health care decisions. We aim to forge partnerships with global research and advocacy organizations, especially networks led by youth, to create positive and effective messages about reproductive health and rights at the regional and global levels.
