The Lancet: Special issue on family planning
July 11th 2012
This Lancet Series reviews the evidence for the effects of population and family planning on people’s well-being and the environment. The Series appears ahead of the London Summit on Family Planning, hosted by the UK Government, on Wednesday, July 11, 2012. The Summit will bring together participants from across the world to mobilise global action supporting the rights of 120 million additional women and girls to access family planning without coercion or discrimination.
The Lancet Series amalgamates the latest thinking underpinning these crucial deliberations, showing how lack of access to family planning carries a huge price, not only in terms of women’s and children’s health and survival but also in economic terms.
