Family Planning Champions Speak Out on International Day of the Girl
DateOctober 11, 2016
October 11 marks International Day of the Girl, a day to recognize and reflect upon girls’ rights and the need to empower girls around the world. Ensuring that adolescents and girls of reproductive age have access to sexual education and contraceptive choice is central to their empowerment – through contraception, they have a greater chance of completing their education, pursuing their careers, and fulfilling their dreams. FP2020 spoke with three remarkable young women in Uganda, Zambia and India about their work to bring contraception to women and girls in their communities.
