Lockdowns, stockouts, economic disasters, and more are changing where women and families access critical reproductive health care, how they get those services, and even what types of care they need. Pathfinder has been there, adapting and working, throughout the pandemic in some of the highest-need countries around the world.
On Thursday, October 15, join Alyssa Patmos, a member of Pathfinder’s Acacia Circle, in conversation with Crystal Lander, Pathfinder’s Executive Director of Global Affairs, as we discuss the biggest risks to reproductive health and rights around the world right now, what we’re seeing on the ground in the countries we serve, and how Pathfinder is adapting and continuing our critical work in the face of COVID-19.
