Family Planning Advocacy Through Religious Leaders
CCIH worked with the Christian Health Association of Kenya, the Churches Health Association of Zambia and the Ecumenical Pharmaceutical Network to develop this easy-to-use step-by-step guide to train religious leaders to advocate in their own countries for family planning support and services. The guide covers how to develop an advocacy plan, how faith-based organizations can develop trainings for religious leaders, how they can monitor and evaluate the success of their efforts, and more. It is available in English and French. See a full page of Resources related to the Guide
Family Planning Advocacy Fact Sheet
CCIH produced this document entitled: “Think you know where Christians stand on Family Planning? Think again!” It is a fact sheet on the benefits of family planning and reproductive health, challenging misconceptions and miseducation. It has been translated into a number of languages (see below.)
The General Board of Church and Society of the United Methodist Church’s Healthy Families, Healthy Planet program provides guidance on how to advocate for international family planning programs.
