Faith-Based Engagement in Family Planning
On May 2, 2018, the Woodrow Wilson Center's Maternal Health Initiative hosted a two-panel event in collaboration with World Vision U.S., focusing on the role of faith-based organizations in controlling the HIV epidemic through reaching men and boys with HIV testing, and improving maternal and child health through Healthy Timing and Spacing of Pregnancy.
This panel discussion was focused on sharing evidence and learnings around faith, family planning, and healthy timing and spacing of pregnancies. Panelists shared research findings on strategies and experience on the faith community's involvement in family planning, and looked at healthy timing and spacing of pregnancies as a component of maternal, newborn, and child health.
