Encouraging LARC discussions among Providers and Youth
We are excited to share our new SBCC tools to encourage healthcare providers and youth to talk about LARCs.
The tools have been posted here on the HC3 website: http://healthcommcapacity.org/technical-areas/family-planning/long-acting-reversible-contraceptives-larcs/
Let us know what you think!
Investing in Family Planning
The relationship between fertility and economic development is and often reciprocal, research in developing countries has shown that reducing fertility can yield economic benefits at the both household and national levels. Each dollar invested in family planning brings multiple benefits in terms of births averted and lives saved, making family planning an extremely cost-effective health intervention. International studies confirmed that family planning ranks among the most cost-effective of all health services, along with other basis and preventive health measures such as vaccinating children and preventing HIV/AIDS. For decades, research has shown that for a relatively modest investment, family planning saves lives. It is intuitive then that investing in family planning lifts families out of poverty.
We look forward to hearing more from population experts, researchers and practitioners.
