Family planning saves lives and helps ensure educational and economic opportunity for women, girls, families, and communities. The family planning and reproductive health community is often focused on data and metrics—using the numbers to elevate family planning as a high-impact development intervention with strong returns on investment. Data is essential for successful programming, but stories can help bring the data to life, share knowledge and experience, create community, and compel action.
Family Planning Voices
K4Health and Family Planning 2020 (FP2020) created Family Planning Voices to document and share personal stories from people around the world who are passionate about family planning. This growing collection features portraits of storytellers alongside their own words, connecting voices and faces across the globe, from small rural villages to megacities.
