Do you have a personal connection to Pathfinder's work?
My personal connection with Pathfinder started in 1990s, when I started with interacting with Pathfinder staff in the Kenya Country Office. I admired the work they did in reproductive health, especially in family planning. I also admired their approach in working with communities.

I encourage those interested in reproductive health to keep themselves updated with all the international, regional, and national policies and strategies in reproductive health. Read all best practices and lessons learned in service provision
