U.S. Government Rejoins Worldwide Consensus on Reproductive Health
Date:1/8/2010

reproductive health services, has fallen 23 percent in real dollars since its high in 1995," said Suzanne Ehlers, Interim President of Population Action International. "Today's statement by Secretary Clinton marks a return to U.S. leadership on international family planning."

Investments in reproductive health programs have saved lives and delivered real results. In Mexico, the infant mortality rate fell by 70% between 1970 and 2005, as the use of modern contraceptives nearly doubled. Similar results have been seen in Bangladesh, Egypt, Thailand, and elsewhere.

Conversely, inadequate funding for reproductive health and family planning programs hold grave consequences for women and families. One woman dies needlessly in pregnancy or childbirth every minute of every day, and six million more suffer injury, illness or disability. Each year, between 70 to 80 million unintended pregnancies occur in the developing world.

To meet the unmet need for family planning and achieve the goal of achieving universal access to reproductive health, the coalition of non-profit organizations calls on the Obama Administration to:

  • Ensure that the new Global Health Initiative retain a strong focus on interventions to prevent unintended pregnancy, promote women's health and save women's lives.
  • Ensure that greater access to contraception and reproductive health care remains a high priority within any restructuring of the U.S. government's foreign assistance program so that women, men and youth can access a comprehensive range of reproductive health services no matter where they are accessing care.
  • Work with the U. S. Congress to fund international family planning programs at $1 billion, to reverse a decade of inadequate funding, and eliminate punitive legislative restrictions that continue to tie-up the U.S. contribution to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
