Organized by Center for Global Development
Join Center for Global Development (CGD) for a conversation with four former directors of United States Agency for International Development (USAID)’s Office of Population and Reproductive Health. Since the Office’s inception in 1969, the US government has played a substantial role in supporting expanded access to voluntary family planning around the world through technical assistance, diplomatic and policy engagement, and financial support. But differences in policy across administrations have meant that US leadership in international family planning has often faced periods of uncertainty. CGD is convening a panel to revisit historic experiences and to shed light on lessons learned that may be used to inform stakeholders in the current landscape.
