A New Resource: Articles On The London Summit On Family Planning
The London Summit on Family Planning was hosted by the UK Government on Wednesday, July 11, 2012. The Summit brought together participants from across the world to mobilise global action supporting the rights of 120 million additional women and girls to access family planning without coercion or discrimination.
The Lancet Series amalgamates the latest thinking underpinning these crucial deliberations, showing how lack of access to family planning carries a huge price, not only in terms of women's and children's health and survival but also in economic terms.
