Family Planning & Public Health

Please keep in mind that                                 :

  • Family planning is the ability of individuals and couples to decide freely and
    responsibly the number, spacing and timing of their children and to have
    the information and means to do so.
  • Family planning promotes self-actualisation, empowerment, as well as health and well-being, and reduces maternal and infant deaths through the prevention of unintended pregnancy and unsafe abortion.
  • Family planning services include providing access to a range of safe and
    effective contraceptive methods, counselling and education, pre-conception care,
    screening and treatment of STIs-SRDs,infertility services, safe abortion care and
    post-abortion care.
  • Family planning is a cost-effective public health intervention that can reduce maternal mortality by 25% and neonatal mortality by 15%. 
  • It can also reduce the transmission of HIV and other STIs, prevent adolescent pregnancies, improve women’s education and employment opportunities, and contribute to  environmental sustainability.

With respect and love. 1st November 2023, Ankara
