Reproductive health, family planning & ethics - case studies from Honduras, Thailand & Tanzania

3 January 2020

This event is organised by the London Group of Population Matters:


How do reproductive health services and attitudes to family planning vary around the world?

Answers to these questions are crucial for those wanting to empower women and give them choices as to how many children to have and when to have them.



The first two speakers are recently qualified doctors who will talk about their experiences in low resource countries during their final year in medical school. The third speaker is a retired GP who has first-hand experience facing the ethical challenges of introducing family planning in Tanzania.
