Family Planning Challenges Print {sharethis label=}
The latest addition to the CCIH Voices from the Global South series features the work of Christian Relief and Development, Inc. to help families safely space the births of their children in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
While stories of religious groups discouraging contraception often gain attention in the media, it is frequently lack of supplies and information and not faith that inhibits couples in developing nations from planning and safely spacing the births of their children. In reality, people of faith and faith-based organizations are providing family planning services in places where families struggle to feed their children and women often die in childbirth.
