Abt Associates: Bold thinkers driving real-world impact
International Women’s Day, sponsored by the United Nations and observed each year on March 8, is an occasion to reflect on the impact of maternal health and family planning on women.
Family planning and maternal health programs are a fundamental part of women’s health because they provide essential and often life-saving services to women and their families. More reproductive flexibility allows women and their families to better manage their household resources, obtain education, and potentially increase equity between women and their partners.
