The latest in global sexual and reproductive health news
On March 1, Pathfinder is launching a unique challenge in the week leading up to International Women's Day 2010: 200 Thousand for 200 Million.
Since 1957, Pathfinder International has been working to introduce quality reproductive care to remote communities around the world, and now, in honor of International Women's Day (to be held tomorrow, March 8th) they are on a campaign to raise awareness about maternal and newborn care, family planning, and reproductive health in the developing world.
I just saw a powerful video on www.Girl2Woman.org I thought you'd be interested in. By sharing with you, I'm also making a difference in the lives of girls and women in the developing world.
That's why I find it refreshing to hear about efforts like Girl2Woman, an initiative of Pathfinder International to jump start the conversation about global reproductive health care and to raise funds to ensure access to that health care is available to women worldwide
The Girl2Woman project presents an ideal way to involve youth and educate others regarding the fundamental need for global reproductive health care access. Two hundred thousand views is a lot to accomplish in a week, but this video is well worth the effort.
