Family Planning

CPHDA actively promotes the appropriate use of modern contraceptives, birth spacing and safe sex practices not only among married couples, but also targets the neglected and high-risk populations of youth and single adults. Adolescents and youth (under 24) in most countries are both the majority of the nation’s population and high-risk groups in terms of sexual and reproductive health (SRH), yet are often marginalized from SRH services. In addition to embedding family planning into traditional maternal and child health programs, CPHDA strives to fill this gap to reduce health risks among this vulnerable population.
