Word on the Street: African Women Share Their Reproductive Health Stories

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

Dear Family Planning Champion,


Behind all of the family planning and reproductive health data are real stories that offer vital lessons. Word on the Street is an honest look into the lives and reproductive experiences of women in South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Uganda. It integrates data and real-life stories to advocate for the use of multipurpose prevention technologies (MPTs)—innovative products that can simultaneously prevent HIV, other STIs, and/or unintended pregnancy.
