Faith Leaders and Family Planning

Today is International Human Rights day. On this occasion of honoring the human rights of people all over the world, we’re launching a beautiful visual story profiling sub-Saharan Christian faith leaders who champion family planning. These men of God are leading the charge for women’s and men’s access to the fundamental right of family planning tools.

Their rationale: Christian teachings on morality, health and sustainability teach that when women are able to plan and space their pregnancies, their families and communities benefit. The leaders share some very personal stories about their own families, and their journey toward supporting family planning.

We’ve also included some inspiring data and perspectives from our partners at Christian Connections for International Health to help fill out the picture.

Take a look at the story, and let us know what you think!
