Every year, around 20 million girls under the age of 19 face pregnancy (often unintended), and the associated risks that come with it. As part of the Postabortion Care Consortium, Pathfinder and FHI explored youth perspectives on sexual and reproductive health care.
Reproductive health stories from Pathfinder and beyond
Today is a day of beginnings at Pathfinder. It is the first of the month, the start of a new fiscal year, and importantly, today is the official start of a new five-year strategy. Looking beyond 2015, we must advance sexual and reproductive health and rights globally by catalyzing change locally. We must do it now.
For 50 years, Pathfinder International has served millions of women, men, and young people across Kenya. Today, we celebrate our proudest, most groundbreaking achievements. And we thank the dedicated and passionate partners, donors, and staff that made them possible.

Voices from Mozambique: Discussing Ongoing Efforts to Advocate for Safe and Legal Abortion for Women Everywhere
There are many words that come to mind when describing Axie Muldoon, the protagonist in Kate Manning’s latest novel, My Notorious Life. Among them, “fiery,” “enterprising,” “spirited,” “scrappy,” and, at times, “insecure.” But one stands above them all—“strong.”
Open Letter from a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer: Congressional Ban on Abortion Care Coverage Unacceptable
In the early 1970s, I spent two unforgettable years in Punjab, India. It left me with lasting friendships and played a major role in how I see the world, myself, and what I have done with my life since. The Peace Corps instilled in me a desire to see women everywhere empowered to take charge of their lives.
In May, the Postabortion Care Consortium convened at the world’s largest conference on the advancing the status of women and girls: Women Deliver. Although we gathered in part to celebrate the progress made on the postabortion care front, the celebration was tempered.
As our staff return from Women Deliver, we are energized and inspired by new knowledge and ideas for improving the status of the world's women and girls.

I can’t remember the last time I was this excited to read so many books—and I’m a pretty voracious reader. Just in time for Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day, here are three books about the state of the world’s women—two from international leaders and one from a US business executive. All showcase the importance of fighting for change.
Last week, the world’s attention was captured by a young woman who died in an Irish hospital after being denied a voluntary abortion. It is difficult not to see parallels between her case and the fates of too many women who remain unable to get access to safe abortion.
