ICRW joins so many others in acknowledging that the conviction of Derek Chauvin for the brutal murder of George Floyd represents a critical step in advancing accountability among law enforcement and the criminal justice system for the ongoing unjust treatment of Black and brown Americans. We also acknowledge and support the work that remains to be done to dismantle systemic racism in America and around the world.


Fertility Awareness for Community Transformation (FACT)

Adolescents and Youth, Family Planning, Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights

ICRW is working with the Institute for Reproductive Health (IRH) at Georgetown University, Population Media Center and Save the Children on the USAID-funded Fertility Awareness for Community Transformation (FACT) Project, which aims to improve fertility awareness and expand family planning access in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia through communicating actionable, life-course-appropriate information about fertility, enabling individuals and couples to apply this knowledge to their own circumstances and needs. ICRW will work with the FACT team to integrate gender considerations into all aspects of the project, which will, in part, contribute to a greater understanding of whether and how expanding access to fertility awareness-based methods allows for greater uptake of family planning and reduces unintended pregnancies.
