Family Planning for the World's Poor: Who Will Pay?

Donors Discuss the Future of Global Reproductive Health

WASHINGTON, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Reproductive rights will be "key to the foreign policy of this administration," Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said. Research shows that smaller families can boost the economy of developing countries. And policymakers are increasingly recognizing the connections between population and other global issues such as education and the environment.

But despite these endorsements, the future of funding for family planning and reproductive health remains uncertain. Who will give more, and who will join or leave the fold? Will donors and foundations try new technologies and target new groups, or rely upon time-tested tactics and types of contraceptives? Join us at the Wilson Center on Tuesday, September 22, as representatives from the Gates Foundation, the Packard Foundation, the Netherlands, and the United States discuss these and other future funding issues.
