Interactive Database Summarizes Effects of U.S. Family Planning Policy
- "Access Denied: U.S. Restrictions on International Family Planning," Global Gag Rule Impact Project: The interactive database provides case studies on the effects of the so-called "global gag rule," which bans funding from going to international organizations that discuss or provide abortions. Case studies for several African countries discuss how the rule has affected reproductive health services and HIV/AIDS prevention programs. The project is a collaborative research effort led by Population Action International, in partnership with Ipas, Planned Parenthood Federation of America and the International Planned Parenthood Federation and with assistance from EngenderHealth and Pathfinder International (globalgagrule.org, 4/20).
