Faith-based Support for Family Planning FY 2024

May 10, 2023

by Kathy Erb

CCIH joined faith-based organizations in a letter urging robust funding for Family Planning to protect the health of mothers and children and help families have the size family they wish and can support. Family Planning and Reproductive Health (FP/RH) programming lowers maternal mortality and morbidity rates as well as infant and child death rates. Globally, one-third of women are affected by illness or death due to poor reproductive health. Every year more than half a million women die in childbirth, with over 95% of them in Africa and Asia. The deaths of these women leave behind children that are more vulnerable to disease and death themselves. The use of voluntary family planning, which gives women and couples the tools to time and space their pregnancies in ways that are consistent with their faith and culture, allows families to have the number of children they wish to have in the healthiest and safest way possible.
