Reaching Young People Where They Are

Reaching Young People Where They Are

More people are using mobile phones to access the internet than ever before – especially youth. Global Mobile is a joint effort by Planned Parenthood and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). We’re using mobile technology to connect young people around the world with health information and services, giving them the power to control their bodies and their lives.

Global Advocacy and U.S. Foreign Policy Efforts

The U.S. is the leading bilateral donor for international family planning and reproductive health. We must sustain this leadership if we’re to see progress — and not declines — in the health of women and families worldwide.
