Addressing Critical Knowledge Gaps in Newborn Health

Reproductive Health / Family Planning

Family planning benefits more than just the adolescent girls and women who utilize it; it is vital to child survival. An estimated 570,000 newborns would be saved if the unmet need for family planning was fulfilled. 79,000 women's lives would also be saved.

Ensuring women and girls are able to plan whether and when they have babies means babies and young children are more likely to survive and thrive.
