My Future, My Choice: Increasing Young People's Access to Contraception
This Fall 2013 edition of Pathways explores Pathfinder's work with adolescents and youth, and in particular, providing those young people with choices when it comes to their contraception methods, their bodies, and their futures.
Learn more about our work in Ethiopia, where we're counseling youth on a range of contraception options, including long-acting methods that are an ideal match for many young girls.
