    Beginning on Monday, July 30, 2018, Healthcare Information for All (HIFA) will hold a four-week facilitated discussion about the family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH) information and service needs and rights of children and youth.

Building upon themes from a March 2018 forum, this lively exchange will focus on the specific needs of children (aged 0-17 years) and youth (aged 15-24 years). The discussion will also highlight many useful resources, including the 2018 update to Family Planning: A Global Handbook for Providers.
