Institute for Reproductive Health celebrates 20th year of expanding family planning options

Twenty years ago, the natural family planning options available to couples around the world were widely regarded by many people and by some family planning programs as ineffective, complex and time-consuming. Access to and information about natural family planning was limited, making it especially difficult for couples in developing countries to utilize these methods.

For the past two decades, the Institute for Reproductive Health at Georgetown University has worked to help women and men make informed choices about family planning and provide effective natural options. With support from the U.S. Agency for International Development, the Institute has researched and developed simple natural family planning methods and has provided technical assistance and training to international organizations in 25 countries, including those in Africa, Asia and Latin America to help incorporate fertility awareness into their work.

The Institute will kickoff its 20th year of expanding family planning options for women and men around the world with a reception and award ceremony Friday, December 9, at 3:30 p.m. at the Ronald Reagan International Trade Building. The event is being held in collaboration with USAID.

"The Institute for Reproductive Health's 20-year record of achievements in research and education on family planning and reproductive health issues illustrates a deep commitment to public health in the United States and around the world," said Stuart Bondurant, MD, interim executive vice president for health sciences at Georgetown University.

The Office of Population and Reproductive Health's Research, Technology and Utilization Division's third annual Marjorie C.

CEMOPLAF is a leading provider of family planning and reproductive healthcare services to low
