Last year, on World Population Day, many of us talked about the fact that we had crossed the seven billion mark in terms of global population. While this number is high, I urge us not to lose sight of the fact that each country is faced with its own unique set of population challenges and opportunities.
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.

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.
When Harriet was 15, two life-changing things happened. The rebel Lord’s Resistance Army finally left Uganda, allowing families like hers to return to what was left of their homes. That same year, she gave birth to her first child. Suddenly, she and her husband, Emmanuel, had to look to the future. But that seemed impossible.
Azhar Hamdy was desperate. A divorced mother in Egypt’s poorest governorate, she believed the only way to give her daughters a better life was to marry them off young. But she was wrong. This is her story.
For the past five years, millions of women, men, and young people throughout Ethiopia have been touched by the Integrated Family Health Program, led by Pathfinder International and JSI and funded by USAID.

Dorothy was married and pregnant by 18. By 22, she had five children. That’s what happens when you are a woman living with no choice about your body.
From time to time, I’m asked the question, “Why do you do the work that you do?” In turn, I ask “Why wouldn’t I want to do the work I do?”
October 21st was an exciting and memorable day for Pathfinder’s partnership to promote sexual and reproductive health and well-being among migrant factory workers in Changzhou, China under the China Wellness Project.
Pathfinder’s “mCenas!” is a first for Mozambique—a text message education campaign that provides contraceptive information to youth (15-24 years old).
Youth should be a time for learning, discovery, and growth. Unfortunately, in many parts of the world, youth can also be a time in which young people are denied access to the information they may need most—information about their bodies.
Dr. David Wanjala, Medical Officer in Charge at Tudor District Hospital in Mombasa, sat down with Linda Suttenfield, Pathfinder International’s Director of Communications, to share how the APHIAplus Nairobi-Coast project, led by Pathfinder and funded by USAID, has made a difference at his facility.
