Family planning can truly make a difference in the lives of women, their families, and entire nations. When women choose to space their children’s births, they are at less risk of maternal death and their children will have better health and nutrition outcomes. What’s more–family planning is a good investment: every rupee spent on contraception has a 110% return in savings on pregnancy costs.
