Holistic Solutions to Address Family Planning and the Gendered Impacts of Crises

That One Thing - The one FP/RH update you need to focus on this week

Dear Family Planning Champion,


How do global crises affect the rate of unplanned adolescent pregnancies? Does climate change impact women more than men? Unfortunately, we are seeing more examples of the gender impacts of crises. A new resource shows us how this can happen and provides resources to think about addressing family planning (FP) during crises using a holistic approach. 


Have an idea for That One Thing? Please send us your suggestions.

OUR PICK THIS WEEK

Holistic Solutions to Address Family Planning and the Gendered Impacts of Crises

This new resource from the PACE project outlines the following key points:

 

    • Links between gender, violence, and the environment
    • Quick facts about the impact of crises on women
    • How COVID-19 and climate change each have gendered impacts 
    • How holistic, integrated solutions can address these interlinking issues of gender and access to FP in crisis settings

 

Not only does access to FP enhance gender equality and other development outcomes, but evidence suggests that it promotes stronger resilience to shocks at the household and community level when integrated with other development strategies. Read more to learn how an integrated population, health, and environment approach can support your FP program.
