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. One in three women in Ethiopia have had their first child by the time they are 18 years old, but giving young women choices and knowledge is helping Pathfinder change lives.

Also read about mCenas!, Pathfinder's new initiative to reach youth in Mozambique, on the ground and through their phones by using their lingo and narrative stories. Pathfinder's Senior Project Manager for mHealth, Marion McNabb, shares her five favorite parts of the mCenas! project.
