Join a webinar on family planning in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). The one-hour webinar will take place July 7 at 10:00am EDT and will focus on the new Family Planning in Latin America and the Caribbean: The Achievements of 50 Years report. The webinar will be led by Jane T. Bertrand, PhD, MBA, with MEASURE Evaluation and Tulane University; Roberto Santiso-Gálvez, MD; Victoria M. Ward, PhD; Marguerite Farrell, MSc, with USAID; and Jennifer Slotnick, MSc, with the USAID LAC Bureau.

The report examines the specific role of voluntary family planning in accelerating fertility decline in the LAC region since the mid-1960s. The current strength of family planning programming throughout the LAC region represents a major achievement in international development, both in terms of health and women’s rights.

Lessons from the LAC region may also prove useful for countries in other regions as they strive to meet the Millennium Development Goals, reduce maternal and child deaths, and achieve health equity for their citizens.
